Can H1B and F1 Visa holders earn money online?

H1B people, its little harsh but you got to understand this point that you are Resident Alien (Immigrant) at this point and can only work for your employer and if there is any other source of Income(online earnings) its considered as Illegal earnings. So basically, if you are on a H1-B visa, you are authorized to work for only one those employers that sponsor your visa. You cannot be self-employed and earn additional income and doing so will render you out-of-status. (more…)

First Day in US???

Posted on April 11, 2009. Filed under: F1 Visa, Prospective Students |

 

I still remember the first day when I landed in US for my MS. I was totally confused as to what all things I needed to get done before I start off with my quarter.

 

I hope the below lists gives you an idea of what are the utmost important things that you need to get done when you land for the first time.

 

1)    Get your SSN ( Social Security Number, its utmost important to apply incase you want to work on-campus)

2)    Opening a Bank Account.

3)    Medical Insurance ( either university gets it for you or you need to look on your own, it’s a must)

4)    Driving License ( You need to go through a written test and then a drive test)

5)    Get a Cell phone (Optional, but would recommend getting one).

6)    Get a Laptop (Optional, but highly recommended, worth buying once). I got my laptop in my second quarter as it became very difficult to do all assignments on the department computer.

7)    Start Looking for an on-campus job. ( these include RA, TA, grading jobs, note taking for students who are deaf and dumb, etc)

8)    Most of the students don’t get the university apartment immediately after they land. So, look for apartment.

9)    Pay your tuition fees for the first quarter.

10) Most important thing is just enjoy the complete process, talk to professors, make friends and have a fun time.

 

I would highly recommend talking to and being in touch with the International Student Office people to know more about things around. 

GOOD LUCK!!! Let me know if you have any questions and I will try my best to answer it. :)
