I assist in a project for a US international student. Now, he wants to pay via the Upwork client account. Is it legal to open a client account and pay in Upwork for international students in the USA with F1 VISA?
Hi Md Rakib,
While you can find general information about eligibility to use Upwork here, unfortunately, we aren’t able to advise about a specific case or a specific visa or immigration status and which business activities it allows. It would be best to consult with a legal advisor or even an international student advisor your client may have through their school.
