  • Contracting job before H1B

    Hello,
    I would like to know if its possible to work as a contractor while i am waiting for my H1B (H1B 2016)? I m currently holding a B2 visa but theres a company that would like to offer me a job, but since theres no H1B for this year, I would like to know whats the best solution for this situation in order to keep me rolling in the states. Thank you!

    Its illegal to work in US while on B2 visa in US.

    This is my opinion not legal advice.

        Contractor or on the roll, it does not matter. You need a valid work visa to work. B2 is not a valid work visa. If in doubt seek an attorney's opinion.
