    No, it is not legal for you to look for job opportunities in Upwork while on an L-1 visa in the US. L-1 visa holders are only allowed to work for the company that sponsored them. Getting a job from Upwork is considered an online work and all online works or considered work. It is therefore wise to stay away from doing online job platforms like Upwork.

    If you want to earn extra money, then you can ask your employer if you can work for pad overtime. If not, then you can try investing in a business and earn dividends from it. This is a passive type of income and it's very legal for L-1 visa holders. You can also buy stocks, funds and bonds, and earn from them.

    Note: This is not legal advice.
