    freelancing is providing your services to a client(individual/company).
    it is actually illegal on h4 visa though many do it
    u can try elance.com , if you are interested

    good luck:)

    I tried odesk..but if u read the legal terms in it...u will find that:

    *U.S. residents need a signed W-9 on file to withdraw funds from their oDesk account
    * Its illegal for H1 and h4 to work in odesk!

    but i am not sure whether we can work from here and get cash in india

    hi coolfiregirl,

    i agree to what you say. such terms are definitely mentioned in odesk .
    but,i am also pretty sure that there are people out there who have made money on and off using odesk or other such frelancing sites:)... anyway,they don't pay much money except for website dev or logo dev kind of work....
    i guess,as long as it is not too huge an amount,it should not be a problem(lets hope atleast)
