I have been itching to do a startup since a long time but this visa (H1-B) is getting forever to sort out (6+ years already)
One idea to work around the H1B issue is as follows -
- I transfer my H1 to Company A (existing consulting company)
- I setup Company B
- I am not allowed to work for this Company B because company A holds my H1B
- Company A lends my services to Company B, invoices and gets paid by Company B
- Company B uses my services to build whatever I want to build and then some consulting at companies x, y, z (to bring cash in and pay back company A)
Assuming that Company A is OK with this, is this possible?
Can I consult for my own company through a consulting company holding my H1B?
(Least interested in pro/anti H1B flame wars or discussions around how the immigration process is broken/not broken. Strictly looking for ideas/thoughts around what could be done, given my situation. )
