Request to Add Afghanistan as a Supported Country on Upwork

Dear Upwork Team,

 

I am writing to draw your attention to the tremendous potential of Afghan entrepreneurs and freelancers who are eager to showcase their skills on Upwork. However, due to the lack of a reliable payment solution in the past, they have been unable to fully participate in the platform.

 

With the introduction of Payoneer, Afghan individuals and business owners can now open an account and carry out borderless transactions. This development presents a significant opportunity for Upwork to tap into a new and highly motivated pool of talent.

 

Therefore, I would like to request that Upwork considers adding Afghanistan to its list of supported countries. By doing so, you would not only be empowering Afghan entrepreneurs but also expanding your own talent pool and contributing to the growth of the global freelance economy.

 

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I would be grateful if you could kindly forward my message to the appropriate officials at Upwork.

 

Best regards,

Mohammad Khalid Ibrahimi

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Hi all,

 

We appreciate your interest. Currently, we can't provide service in some locations like Afghanistan due to limitations with our payment partners. If the situation changes in the future, we'll make sure to update the Community.

I'm sure Upwork will be available there someday.

But it isn't available there right now.

 

Upwork doesn't work in Afghanistan right now.

It is not on the list of available countries for which you can do a Location Search.

You can, however, search for "Afghanistan" as a general search term, and find the profiles of Afghans who have escaped Afghanistan and now live elsewhere.

One wonders if they'll even have access to the internet for much longer.

Wishing all the best to all the innocent people out there. 

One way to look at it:

Upwork is now available as a place to hire freelancers in:

 

Cambodia

Vietnam

Somalia

Laos

Myanmar

Sudan

Yemen

 

...and other places where once one might have thought such a thing impossible. So, yes, it is possible for things to get better in Afghanistan as well.

Not solved yet we cant find Afghanistan in list
