How can I manage my business before my I-526 is approved? Currently, I am in the United States on an F-1 visa, and I would like to make an investment in a TEA. If I make an investment and do not run the business until my application is approved, I will incur prohibitively high expenses. However, since I do not have work authorization, can I hire a manager who will manage the company temporarily? Also, if I have some rental properties in the United States, does it constitute a violation of F-1 requirements (for not having work authorization)?
While you are waiting for the conditional permanent residency you may hie a manager to direct the EB-5, US business. The same manager may also assist with the day to day activities of the rental business.
