Hi Team Please help!!!!!

 

I am a under graduate Engineering 3rd year student in US on H4 Visa. I would like to do some internship during summer. And to whomsoever I have contacted they are replying back with comment that during internship they will be paying some stipend. As legally I know being on H4 visa, I can not accept any stipend/payment/check.

 

But I have heard that one can accept stipend up to some limit in 'Dollar Value'.

 

Please if some one can help in Identifying:

 

1.  if it is true that H4 visa holder can accept stipend during internship?

2. If yes, then what is the 'Dollar value' limit?

 

Any tips will be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance

 

Regards

No. You would need to move to F1 status to be paid any money.
