I am regularly asked for recommendations on worldwide work from home jobs available outside the US. The problem is with so many online scams you have to be careful to only find trustworthy sites that actually pay. As a result, I have put together a list of worldwide jobs and gigs allowing you to work from anywhere no matter where you are located. I will add to this list as I come across more sites that I trust.
By now we all know to look out for foreign transaction fees on the credit cards that we use while traveling abroad – no one likes paying a 3% premium simply to make everyday purchases just because you’re not doing so in the US. But what might slip your mind is whether or not your ATM card will charge you fees for withdrawing cash abroad, which can be equally if not more onerous than the fees credit cards charge. In fact, it can actually be two charges – a flat ATM use fee of $2-5, and a transaction fee that’s usually a percentage of 1-3% of the withdrawal. So you can really save by knowing what your bank charges.
Bloggers are typically people who enjoy a particular topic and enjoy writing about it on a semi-regular to regular basis. If you have something you are passionate about, or are an expert in a particular area, you can consider starting a blog. Blogs are a great way to: teach people about a particular skill, entertain, or share about life experiences.
In conclusion, please note that survey sites are another great source for extra cash paid regularly. There aren't exactly online jobs that pay weekly, but you can only get paid as often as you have money pending. Even though the cash out threshold is low on these, you won't be able to cash out if you aren't getting survey invites and qualifying into the surveys. But if you have money in your account, the potential is there to get the money almost as soon as you need it.
This debit card is a must-have if you need to travel abroad! Though the bank is not famous, its debit card is really fantastic. It is similar to the Charles Schwab Debit Card, you can compare these two and choose one of them. The main difference is: Fidelity Check Card has a 1% Foreign Transaction Fee (FTF) when you purchase stuff, while Charles Schwab Debit Card doesn’t; You can apply for the Fidelity Check Card without a Hard Pull, while you will get one applying for Charles Schwab Debit Card; Fidelity daily ATM withdrawal limit is $500, while Charles Schwab limit is $1000.
1. Ally: Strictly speaking, Ally does charge a 1% fee, but because it’s low, I thought it was worth mentioning. Per their FAQ page, “If you use an ATM in a foreign country, you may be charged a fee of up to 1% of the transaction amount for the currency conversion and/or cross border transaction. Ally only reimburses ATM fees charged by other banks if the ATM is in the US.”
If you are interested in getting a teaching job, GoAbroad can also help you get certified beforehand. Choose from a selection of TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) courses, which can be completed online. The vast majority of employers will not hire teachers who don’t have a TEFL certification, so taking the time to complete one of these courses will greatly increase your chances of getting a job teaching English abroad.

Although very little data are available for this work-at-home job since it is relatively new, thousands of listings for social media managers can be found on sites like CareerBuilder.com, SimplyHired.com, and Upwork.com. If you have a demonstrated command of social media and a sizable following, you might even be able to get started by reaching out to companies directly and asking if they need help.
I just checked with fidelity. If you have an account with them and they give you a debit card that is attached to that account it is also free atms worldwide and they reimburse any fees the atm charges. I also asked about the foreign transaction fees and the debit card is visa and visa charges a 1% fee. That fee is way better than the 3% of other cards. That will be a big savings traveling over seas. I hope this helps someone.
(Sarah Page: When I applied for a Schwab Investor Checking Account I was in Argentina at the time. Due to the foreign IP address on the application, Schwab required that I bring in various forms of identification to a brick and mortar bank when I returned stateside before approving my application. I recommend not applying from abroad if you want to make the process as easy as possible.)
