    Hi , You are not supposed to work on H4 nor earn anything, be it going to work somewhere or at home either .. This is what in US, get H1B if you are interested in working else consider to start your higher education ...

    You are not supposed to earn a single penny on H4, I am here for 2 1/2 years in US, I researched lot , the only way to work on H4 is working for a Non-profit Organizations like Libraries, Church, Guess what as an Unpaid only..

    Else you can work on H4 and earn as well by working for Organizations like WHO(World Health Organziation) or Embassies( Indian Embassy, Singapore Embassy , Malaysian Embassy etc) ..But you should live closer to these Organization, Washington D.C. Since the capital state has got all the embassies in.Do a more research to see if you have any organization like this in the state you live..

    Furthermore , You have a another option, ask your hubby to apply for a greencard and wait for the EAD to come, you can start to work.

    Good luck if you try for H1B..Sorry typed more info than what you posted ..I am also frustrated being at home, and googled enough to open up option to keep me occupied, Finally started my education ..

    hey H4's can't work or earn in the US, but H4's can certianly work from home and be paid by Indian employers or any other employers for that matter in India right?//you work from home you are paid in Indian Rs and you the payment is got to you in you Indian A/c
    That is possible.

    regards,

    Yes, You are not supposed to earn legally in H4. But if you are desperate to earnsome quick bucks. Why don't you try babysitting ? It's hardwork , but it's a good way to earn money . If interested check with your frens if they need babysitter and spread the word. You can do that full day or for after school hours. I know a lot of people who do that and make pretty decent amount.

    Another option is if you are skilled in music / dance - start a small class in your home .Or Check with the nearby temple whether they need someone to help with the classes.

    Yet another option is teaching - Hindi/your mother tongue /Math - Reading - Charge nominal rates, these are very much in demand.

    There are lot more options like these.One thing is no matter what you do , go for it only if you are passionte in doing that.


    Good Luck!

    Sillygrul,

    I don't think it is that easy to baby sit as well on H4, if you are found, or if someone intimates the authorities that you charge for babysitting then you and your spouse's H1 will also be in threat...

    It would be a touch situation then.And again, even if they are you known people, in the US, people fear of letting their baby to an unlicenced sitter.

    For best option to make money would be getting paid in Indian rupees into your Indian A/C, (Online work) though it won't come of use there in the US, it can take care of your expenses here in India if any or prove as a saving for you.

    Hi

    For all those who want to work on H4, here is an opportunity..

    All you have to do is just refer any OPT/CPT (This is a visa status that is obtained by a student on F1 visa, once he is done with his studies) or you can also refer those individuals who are looking for project and who are on H1 B to join our consultancy.

    Once they are in to our consultancy you will be paid in cash for the reference.

    This is an easy task all you have to do is just find the required persons from your peer group.

    Please contact me through private messages.

    Thanks..
