Hello all,

So the student visa typically allows you to work 40 hours/fortnight but i'm not sure how this would relate to an online business. If you have everything set up and are pretty much waiting for sales for the most part, how would you declare what hours you are working. Also would there be any difference shipping only outside Australia and registering the business in another country? Or can i register it here and have income into my Australian bank account?

Kind regards,

Dan

You can ask for an official paper from your employer where he will indicate your working hours.
As a dropshipper, he is self employed.
