Freelance work while on a worker's permit

Post by KefkieTeapot » Thu Dec 28, 2017 11:05 am

Is it possible to do online work while in possession of an employee/worker's permit?
If not, do I have to obtain a self-employed permit when I want to solely earn through online work?

Depends on the company form you wish to use. For example, worker permit for LLCs and self-employed for sole traders.

Thanks. I have been reading through migri.fi's requirements, and I don't/can't understand how they differ. I want to work on my own online, and most likely be employed by a foreign company abroad as an ESL tutor. Do you have any more information such as funds requirement to be self-employed, and other tidbits? I would deeply appreciate any help. Thank you.

Is your work permit restricted to any particular field? It would say right on it.
