Hi Asmaa,

 

Please check these threads and search the Community for other discussions in which freelancers from Egypt shared their experience about the best payment option for withdrawing funds in USD.

Hello Asmaa

 

So you want to get your money in USD, the only way that I know of is the wire "SWIFT" transfer, Upwork fee is 30$ per transfer, your bank may take some extra fee.

 

You will have to open an account in USD
or if you already have an EGP account ask the bank what will they do if you got a wire transfer in another currency "some banks will open an account automatically for you in that currency, but most of them will transfer the money to EGP"

 

If you will open an account I'd recommend a USD account at AAIB as it takes 0$ of the incoming wire transfer from Upwork but you should check their other fees also.

 

Good luck
