Can we work on J1 visa right from day 1

Hi Team,

Can we travel to USA on J1 visa and start working for some company right from day one. It is said that gradually we can apply for H1 B. Please let me know if this is possible and other details about J1 visa.

Thanks & Regards,


J1 authorizes you to work only for the research lab who has hired you. You cannot work outside, you need H1 to work as a full-time outside.
