Some digging turned out that different departments issue the two visa types. Hence, no streamlining! What a surprise .
For me the change in visa status was a blessing and a curse. I was about getting my beverage business, LeJus Beverages, off the ground, but was pregnant as well. So I had a maternity leave of some sort.
Now, a year later, the babes are both happily installed in daycare and I get a break. As it is luxury to have the kids in daycare I would love to do my part on the income front. Plus, I yearn to busy myself with non-mommy activities, hence this blog.
After I told friends about my new endeavor two information stuck with me:
1) There might be a change in H-4 visa working restrictions
2) Incorporate in Estonia
There are so many thoughts about both points going through my mind, that I needed to talk to someone who could help me out to sort them. My best resource is my husband’s employer.
No change in the working permission as of yet. And if there is a change, just special cases will get a working permission. So, don’t hold your breath.
After the exciting though of becoming an Estonian in the all mighty Internet, my hopes were crushed. After discussing the new Estonian laws, I still need to have a legal working permission in the US as I will work here. (I hope that makes sense.)
However, if you happen to have a different experience, please tell me about it.
We need a GreenCard anyway. So, will kick of the process within the next weeks and I will keep you posted on this one.
