H1b/H4 Visa


Have Questions?

I asked an attorney few years ago, what law stops us from starting a business on H1b and H4 visa? ( I was already doing a business on H1b visa). He said on the live radio that it is not a law but it is a common sense. He added, H visa are in the USA to work and not to start a business. So according to him we are slave in this country and not supposed to do anything else other than a job.

H4 VISA can’t do a job but who stops them to start a business ? No agency is stopping you from starting a business. You may not be eligible for SSN but who cares? To start a business no-one is asking you for your SSN. You can still file a tax and take profit out of it. We lived in the darkness for too long and wasted plenty of opportunity.

A Form I-766 employment authorization document (EAD; [1]) or EAD card, known popularly as a work permit, is a document issued by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that provides temporary employment authorization to noncitizens in the United States.

Let’s read it again, employment authorization not a business authorisation. So in order to start a business you don’t require to have an EAD card. EAD is to get a job. I don’t know how people make logic that EAD can start a business but without EAD its not?

Nevada and Delaware are the most popular states to register your companies from a foreign country due to tax purpose. To register your foreign business in Nevada, you must file an Application for Registration of Foreign Limited-Liability Company with the Nevada Secretary of State (SOS). You can download a blank application form from the SOS website.

What is Foreign LLC?

For Delaware purposes, if your LLC is formed in another state, then it is known as a foreign LLC in Delaware. In other words, foreign doesn’t mean from another country. Instead, it means your business was organized under the laws of another state. A domestic LLC, on the other hand, is one that is formed in the state where it is doing business. This is common usage throughout the United States. For example, an LLC formed in Arizona is a foreign LLC in Colorado.
