Can F-1 visa holders get income from leased property?

July 29, 2013

Q: Is it legal for an international student with F-1 visa to have an income by leasing a property?

A: Yes, you can have income from a leased property. That is passive income, and not a problem.

The same is true for other capital activity, like investing in the stock market.
