    No.

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.

      You cannot apply for an SSN when you are in H4. You need SSN to start a business. Without SSN you cannot file taxes (whatever income you make on your business). So it is illegal to work on H4.

      Not a legal advice. Use of this information is strictly at your own risk.

        And it is also illegal to engage in business, you must be what the visa is - dependent - 100% dependent.

          -- You can't do any business or tax payable activities on H4... H4 is Dependent visa means you only join your spouse and family. thats it...
