Foreign national employment visa holders in Hong Kong are quite often interested in setting up a side business…
I am currently employed full-time by a company in Hong Kong. They successfully sponsored my Hong Kong employment visa and I just started my job 2 months ago. All is going very well.
But I would like to register my own business, because I see a chance to act as middle-man for service exchange between China and Europe, and would like that to be done in an official, legal manner.
A recent podcast answer of yours said it would be possible for me to request permission to join in a “side business”.
Does a “side business” involve getting others to register the company, and joining as partner?
Or does it simply mean I can register myself but there are restrictions on what I can earn or do?
Can you please advise on how I can actually go about setting up a side business and then getting the permission of Immigration here to be able to do this?
Best regards, and thank you for sharing your expertise in this manner.
