My daughter is a freshman in college. She is under on a L2 visa. Can she do unpaid internships?

Bradenton, FL |

She is majoring in Pro Golf Management that requires 16 months of internships during college. They are paid internships which I know she can not take, but can she do them if she do them unpaid?

Unpaid internships should not be deemed unauthorized employment.

Hello. If this is truly an internship related to her coursework and not employment, then she may do this. Sounds like should be okay. Good luck to her. http://www.nejamelaw.com/articles/l1-visa-preventing-surviving-request-for-evidence.html

An unpaid internship related to her coursework should not present a problem. I would also suggest that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney for professional assistance and guidance.

Good luck!

This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice. A consultation with an experienced attorney is always the best way to go.
