My wife is on L2 visa, waiting for USCIS to change the I 94 so she can work. In the meantime, can she start a job with a company in India, travel to US on L2, and continue to work remotely? She will start her US job as soon as her I94 change comes through or EAD is approved. What if any are the legal ramifications of working for a foreign company while on L2?

She can’t work remotely in the US at all until i94 is updated, if it’s for an Indian company.

Thanks for your inputs! I am hoping they actually make this change happen soon. I am assuming my wife won’t have to exit and enter for a changed i94, right?
