comment I want to travel to the USA while working remotely for my non-US employer
@Sean I had no issues at the US border. They were happy with my answer to their question "What are you going to do here for such a long period?" to which I answered "I'll be visiting family/friends, sight seeing etc" I did have a letter from my employer which I didn't end up needing that stated, 'this person is going on holiday in the US during a critical stage of a project so we might need him to work remotely..such and such'. I ended up working 8 hour days initially from my hotel room and then from the client's site for the 1st two months. Plenty of sight seeing from the side

Thank you all for your input as it helped me a lot. Just to follow up on how it went down if anyone is interested, I had no issues at the border control at US. I had a letter from my employer prepared in case it was required but it wasn't needed. Border protection agent did raise the question of why coming in to US shores for such a long period and they were satisfied with my answer which was to visit the country while working remotely for my overseas employer

Thanks for the reply. My non-us employer has no issues paying me for my work during the holiday in the US. My question is whether US will like that arrangement and allow me in to the country as a Business/Visitor B1 Visa in to US and allow me to stay for a period of 3 - 6 months.
