Hi everyone here,

I have a 2,5 year Talent (Accredited Employer) Work Visa, have a job and IRD-number.
My intention is to apply for Partner of a New Zealander Resident Visa after living with my Kiwi partner for 1 year.
Is registering as soletrader allowed, so I can start up a small online business for passive income?
Or do I better wait until I have got my resident visa?

The explanation for my work visa mentions working in my present job for my employer only, but nothing is mentioned about also running a business as soletrader.

Do you have an answer, tips or suggestions? Thanks so much in advance.
