If I make a full-time income from Hubpages, can I still write and get paid while visiting the UK?
UK general visa terms state that a tourist cannot take paid employment or provide services to the public and so forth. If I make a full-time income from writing on Hubpages, and tell UK border patrol that this is what I do for work, what are the chances that this will be a problem?
Basically, is it fine if I still write for Hubpages and get paid by them while I am visiting the UK on a general visitor visa? I cannot find any rock solid answers anywhere.
First It depends how long you are coming here. On a short visit you can say you are on holiday. I am not sure how "doing research" will go down.
For a short visit just say you will not be writing while here. I believe the prohibition is against employment not work as such, ince the goal is to protect the jobs of British workers (except from Indians who were on-shored in droves by big companies a couple of years ago).
you may be able to check at the UK Immigration site or via
http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/visas … n/working/
It does mention various categories but not self employed.
You might be classed as an entertainer.
If you do come to Britain we have a Bed and Breakfast in Edinburgh and the city is well worth a visit as a holiday in London will leave you needing a holiday

Do any hubbers spend 40 hours a week (or more) writing and researching hubs? Does the effort pay off if the site is treated like a regular job?
