Can I work while in the United States on an F1 Visa?
The F-1 visas are issued to international students primarily to enable them study in the U.S. Thus, there are strict restrictions on employment for students with F-1 visas. However, they are allowed to engage in certain types of compensated employments. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) defines a compensated employment as a type of work done in order to get some benefits, which include off-campus, on-campus, part-time and full-time work.
