  • Selling stuff on eBay while on H1B


    If I'm on a H1B visa, can I sell stuff on eBay? Or any other website for the matter?

    If I had personal online businesses (say paid plugins, domain name trading...) before the H1B... will I be forced to shut them down? Or will I still be able to trade domain names and sell my plugins online?

    Anything that is considered work is not allowed. If you are going to receive 1099-MISC for that work, it is definitely not allowed.

      Oh, thanks for your answer and sorry for the delay. I didn't get any notification so I thought nobody had answered my questions.

      So to sell my old TV on eBay is not considered a job... right?

      And if my wife (H4) sell cakes on eBay?

        H4 is not allowed to involve in any kind of work. H4 is a dependent visa and the person should remain a dependent to the primary H1B holder. Otherwise she will be considered to be violating the H4 regulations.
