What it boils down to is that particular visas are designed for specific reasons. In your case, the F1-Visa is intended for study in the US. If you’d like to do other things, like create a startup then there are other options available to you, but it is true that you will have to rely on other visas or a green card to legally do that.
However, you don’t have to feel overwhelmed by the process. An immigration attorney can help streamline the process and help you identify which solution is right for you. Check out our website atto see our affordable services. Let us know if we can help!
