What is H1-B Passive Involvement?

Aggie Hoffman

Given that an H1B holder can only be "passively involved" in a business (e.g. LLC), are the following activities "passive"? 1) Scouting and hiring people, 2) Updating the website with new content, 3) Reaching out to potential customers via phone & e-mail.

You describe active participation. Passive means being an owner, receiving the profit, and hiring others to do the work.
