    Default Work visa and soletrader possible?

    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.

    Cheers,
    Moana

    See this old thread http://www.enz.org/forum/showthread.php?t=43412 for someone in a similar situation. (The same queries about your present visa are advisable.)

    Thanks heaps, JandM,

    Your link and the link in that thread are really helpful. My next steps are:
    - write business idea
    - ask employer for written approval
    - ask Immigration NZ for written approval variation of conditions (both documents attached).

    Fingers crossed!

    Cheers,
    Moana
