    Question Promoting a Foreign Business While on Visa Waiver

    Hello,

    Suppose a foreign entrepreneur visits the US through the Visa Waiver (B1) program. I understand he is allowed to promote/solicit investment in his foreign business, but that he may not run a US business. Can anyone clarify to what extent he is allowed to run his foreign business remotely (e.g. give investment instructions)?

    Thanks,

    The scope of a B1 visa is summarized here, and in more detail here (9 FAM 43.1).
