Computer LoR Uploaded Online from Home Country

Can non-American doctors (e.g: private physicians from my home country) upload an LOR using the LOR web Portal...

Thanks for being so prompt in replying.

So all they have to do is create an account on the LoRP and upload the LOR using my applicant ID...Is that right?

For all those following this post, Non US physicians can make their own account on the LOR web portal...

I was with my non-US physician at the time I needed the LOR, so I walked him through all the steps (helped him create his account, got the LOR uploaded). I could have uploaded the LOR myself through ERAS, but that would have been an unwaived letter...

Hello. Late applicant here.
I have no USCE. I was going to ask for a LoR in my homecountry, getting it translated by a government official and scan and upload it myself.
So, the LoR author should upload it him/herself?
Thank you very much

If he/she can wants to go through the effort of making an id in the LORWebportal, then why not?

English is not our first language, so I either pay for the translation and send it unwaived or ask him/her to write it in english, which on second thought shouldn't be a problem I guess, except for style and stuff. It's worrisome times.
So if I don't see it, it's better, right?
