WHEN SOMEONE COMES TO US ON AN R-1 VISA AND IS BEING PAID BY THEIR SPONSOR AS REQUIRED CAN THEY ALSO WORK AT ANOTHER CHURCH AND GET ADDITIONAL PAY? PART TIME WORK.

  1. Certainly, if the work is part-time and the denomination is the same.


  2. R-1's are limited to work for the organization that sponsored them in the job position for which they were sponsored. You may not engage in other employment, part time or otherwise, without first qualifying for an appropriate employment authorized visa.
