My goal is to find remote jobs that offer visas and sponsorships. Can I find these on Indeed?

Yes. There isn’t a specific filter for this category, so use quotation marks around the keywords "visa sponsorship" in the What The eyeglass icon is where you enter keywords. field.

For example, this search phrase will list programmer jobs. The job descriptions may show:

  • "Candidates needing visa sponsorship are encouraged to apply"
  • "Do not provide visa sponsorship"

Some remote job listings are confusing. I see locations like "Remote- MI," "Remote NC," Remote in North Carolina, or "Remote - Austin." Does that mean I can work anywhere?

Not always. Remote work rules differ from state and company. For example, some jobs require that you live in a certain location even when you can work from home. We encourage you to contact the company if you aren’t sure.

Can I search for "hybrid remote" jobs on Indeed?

Yes. Depending on your location, you may find a Hybrid filter or you can add the "hybrid remote" keywords in the What The eyeglass icon is where you enter keywords. field.
