Thread: Starting Business with H4 Visa?

  1. #1
    Guest
    I am getting the H4 visa soon. I have heard that I can start own business with H4 (but can't get a job from any companies or places). Is this true? If this is true, will you tell me the detail about this issue? Thank you so much.

    To Kayo:

    I was just reading a post which was in same situations like yours. I am going to post the response which was given to that person, who had H4 and wanted to start Business. Response is as under:

    "The H4 visa strictly prohibits the holder from gaining any form of employment; that is, the H4 visa holder is not allowed to earn any income. As an entrepreneur, you would automatically be an employee of the enterprise. We can not conceive of a situation where the entrepreneur is not also an employee of the enterprise. You wish to call earning from entrepreneurship as business earnings, as opposed to employee earnings from employment. There is no difference! Generating income via business ownership is no different from obtaining compensation from employment. You must obtain permission from the US INS (Immigration & Naturalization Service) and a change in your visa status before you can legally launch any of the proposed ventures."


    This response is very clear that you can not start your own business while on H4 and you will permission from INS and must change your status.
    Good luck.

Immigration law is extremely complex. Decisions based on incomplete or inaccurate information may lead to serious adverse results, such as deportation, lengthy delays, or loss of immigration status.

    Persons needing immigration help often fall prey to nonlawyers engaged in the unauthorized practice of law, who lack the knowledge and training to properly evaluate all factors in a case. If you need immigration assistance, please consult a lawyer who has solid experience in immigration law. This advice may be extremely important for you and your family. We urge you to take it seriously.
