I am in H-1B status. I rented out a 2 bed room apartment from a land lord. However, I want to host guests in my second room through Airbnb 3-5 days a month and make an income of $30 per night. Is this legal being under H-1B?
That does appear to be unauthorized employment unless it is a completely passive investment.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
Since it is an income-generating activity that would probably not be allowed as your H-1B is employer-specific and your income limited to that employer.
