Finding ways to make money online can be challenging, especially if you're looking for international work at home. You have to determine what's legit or not. Furthermore you have to see if the opportunities are worth your time. It's like a full time job. But this situation is even worst if you live outside the U.S. or Canada. Apparently there are a lot more obstacles to finding worldwide work at home jobs.

So, that’s why I decided to compile a list of the best international work at  home opportunities for my worldwide brothers and sisters. We hope this list will save you time narrowing down options in your country. Just keep in mind we can only list opportunities that are actually available and legit. If your country isn't listed it wasn't our fault. Unfortunately work at home opportunities aren't available everywhere as crazy as that sounds.  So, without further ado, let’s get cracking, shall we?

What we consider an international work at home job?

Ok, when we refer to international work at home jobs in this article, we mean any country outside the U.S. that offers a work at home opportunity, or any company, U.S-based or not,  that hires workers from anywhere in the world. Simply put, the companies that won’t lock you out based solely on location.

So let’s take a closer look at why not all work at home companies hire just about anyone.

Why Aren't Work At Home Jobs Available Everywhere?

You’re probably wondering why some of these companies block out some countries for jobs that by definition can be done anywhere? Well there are some reasons why work at home jobs may not be open worldwide.

Language

Any company wants to speak to a certain audience in the most effective way possible. Work at home jobs are no different. For example, a content mill that assists clients get content written in English will most probably hire native-English writers only. It may not be fair especially if you can speak and write English just as effectively. Or maybe you are a native speaker but happen to live in a country that is excluded from a work at home opportunity because of the assumption these companies make. Either way language barriers may be a concern for certain companies.

Rewards system

Some work at home companies especially those that pay you to complete short tasks like taking surveys, watching videos and completing offers rely on the local companies they partner with to pay workers. So, if the reward, example Amazon gift card, or PayPal money is not available in your country, you can't get paid so you're locked out.

Legal reasons

Some companies want to avoid being caught on the wrong side of the law. So they'll do anything to keep their books straight. That sometimes means leaving out all other country except where they operate in. Others are not sure of the legality of their business in unfamiliar countries, and the laws that apply in order to legally do business there. So they prefer to play it safe.

The size of the company

Not pointing fingers, but some work at home companies are just not big enough to let in just about anyone. So they prefer to keep their circle small and ensure they only let in a number they can serve efficiently. One way to limit the number of sign ups is to lock out the rest of the world.

History of bad business

It's not always the case that a company simply doesn't want to be international, some have actually been in the past and didn't like the experience one bit. So, they closed shop. Reasons could be fraud, money laundering, a hostile reception by the country in question or even bad business.

Well, now you understand why these jobs aren't always available in your country. Regardless, it sucks if you live in a country where some pretty good opportunities aren't available. If possible, then maybe you're better off starting your own business which is what I did with the help of My Top Work At Home Recommendation.

Worldwide Work At Home Opportunities

Ok enough with the backstory. Here we've compiled a list of the best global work at home companies that are actually available. It's important to note again that we can't make up with jobs or companies that don't exist in your country.

As mentioned earlier, there are just some places where these jobs aren't available. It's a sad reality and your option may be to start your own business which is what My Top Work At Home Recommendation has helped me do.

For those of you who may live in some of the countries below, enjoy the list we've complied.

Online Tasks

Companies that give you the opportunity to make money doing short tasks often rely on partner companies to reward people. That said, you can expect to make a little extra money from answering surveys, watching videos, listening to the radio, cash-back programs, visiting websites and referring others. Here are a few examples.

Swagbucks
