If you are granted a residence permit under the Greencard scheme, you do not need to obtain a separate work permit. A residence permit under the Greencard scheme gives you the right to carry out paid or unpaid work. However, a residence permit under the Greencard scheme does not give you the right to work as a self-employed person (run your own business).
