My green card was approved recently and I have no plans to leave my position with the sponsoring employer. However, I am interested in earning some additional money by selling goods online. My employer has no objections to this. Would this jeopardize my green card?


Once an employer-sponsored green card is issued, the expectation typically is that the beneficiary will work for the sponsoring employer in the position listed on the I-140. If the person works in that position, while also earning money through a second job, entrepreneurship, etc, this ordinarily would not raise any immigration concerns.  (15.Dec.2022)
