I am on a dependent Visa in Germany from India. Can I work for an American or any country client with Germany dependent Visa . Do I need to have a work permit in Germany ? Or is that illegal to work as freelancer without work permit? I might stay in Germany still 9 months which is long term. Can I get paid to my India account, is that possible since I'm staying in Germany, if so upwork will help in tax calculation? or  Do I need to do it on my own?

Hi Radhika,


You may need to consult with a legal advisor about this, to make sure you have an appropriate visa type or permit to work in a country you are situated in and pay taxes accordingly. Unfortunately, we won't be able to legally advise about this situation.


Thank you!
