    International student opening small business (F1 visa)

    bia.migueis Newbie

      Hi, I'm an international student and I will apply for an opt this semester and hopefully byb the end of the semester I'll get a job. I was wondering if I could open a small business making websites or something. And how do I do it? I don't even know if i'm allowed to open a business. Also, when I open a business can I apply for a green card? don't you have to invest about 500k$ to be able to apply for that? I saw it on another discussion http://smallbusinessonlinecommunity.bankofamerica.com/message/89588#89588  but I don't understand how dmac_ontop applied for a greencard while on OPT. Any help would be appreciated.
