  • B1/B2 and H4 holder, can i work remotely for Indian employer! urgent

    Hi All,

    I got my wife on B1/B2 visa immediately after marriage (I am on H1) and then later on she went back to India to get her H4 visa. She is now in US and was contacted by an Indian firm to work for them. They are fine even if she works from them from their US office (as the Indian firm is a subsidiary of a US company). is it possible that she can work on her B1/B2 status in US for the Indian subsidiary (on payroll of Indian firm).

    Can she go back to India and then come back on B1?

    need immediate help!

    She cannot work while on a B1/B2/H4 visa


    This is my opinion not legal advice.

      1. Absolutely not
      2. No

      Individuals are not authorized to be employed in the US on those visas.

        thanks for you reply.

        what I meant is that what if she goes back to India and then comes on B1/B2 for a period of 6 months on a business trip. Is that possible?

        the question i have is, does having H4 discards the B1/B2 you already have?

        Thanks for your reply. What if she comes on a business trip to US later. can't she work that time even if my H1B is still active?
