Small business license from mol is around $40.
What have I missed?
Everything.

Or.... maybe ask Andy KK. He has been doing the same for a while now. He was even kind enough to provide photos and details of the relevant certificates and process in one of these visa threads, maybe 6 months back.
Certainly, the guys in dealing with in Pursat from the ministry are currently sorting exactly this out for me, on their advice......
So , I repeat, what have I missed?

I have the impression they don't want us to work in our own little business. But members may correct me.
Yes, I have registered for business for two years now. (Paid moneys back also for years without WP). I don't know why but it seems to be getting more difficult to do what is asked. Last year we had a visit from the immigration and works and labour department. This is a yearly check of having your paperwork in order. I was given advise by them at the time. I just want to do everything to the book and stay within the legal bounders. It is possible but now with change or, and confusion from departments and visa agents. It just seems more confusing.

In very few countries was any law ever written to be easily understood, that would safeguard the vulnerable.

Many laws are intentionally difficult to interpret...they are written by lawyers and their agent buddies, perhaps,who wish to maintain their position and income.

I would personally be surprised if this process were simple.

Be aware that freelancers will be required to register a business to get the WP.
Lets try and not muddy the waters with conjecture and/or hearsay.

And when you make a "Be aware" statement, try and provide a source.
Oh, okay. Or you could pull your head in.

I went to Lucky Lucky a few weeks ago and was told the same thing... EB based on marriage is no longer available. Ended up having to get a 6 month EG.
Had you ever gotten one previously through Lucky Lucky?

The only cases I've heard of being successful getting an EB EOS based on marriage did so directly from the DoI with marriage cert and sprog birth certificates and another through 'Call Kim' with the same supporting documents.

Maybe it's still possible directly through the DoI.

No, before I was working so had a WP and visa based on that.

I guess it could still be possible, but as typical for a kiwi, I left everything until the last minute and didn’t have enough time to shop around.

I’ll see what the situation is like after the elections and make sure I leave enough time to go out to DoI and do it myself next time and see what happens.

I know this has been asked and answered previously, but have you had success with EOS going directly to DoI? We're up at the end of May and hoping to do the same.
