Starting a company on F-1 Visa in USA.

Asked by: Bhavesh - 27 August, 2012
https://d25eic0jctudgb.cloudfront.net/images/site/avatars/default.png-f1597c1da25f30f8c1a941405e8391c8 I know that I can start a company while on F-1 Visa but I cannot work for it, does that mean I need to hire someone in my company? Is it possible to run my company without any employee?

Theoretically, you have no obligation to hire a manager. As far as I know F-1 visa comes with limitations (which you should research carefully, preferably using the help of an immigration specialist), so it might prevent you from being a paid manager of your company, but it might not prevent you from volunteering your "management services" and other work for free for this company.

Again, being a question dealing with a "grey area" I would once again recommend you to consult an immigration specialist before making any decisions.
