Can a non-resident alien invest in a 529 plan

Hi: I am in U.S on a work visa and would like to invest for my child's college through ESA & 529 plan. I researched a few 529 plans (florida, nevada, georgia) but the eligibility in them is for U.S citizens or
resident aliens. I understand that my status is "non-resident alien" so I can't participate in those. Can someone confirm this? And are there any states that do allow ppl in my status to participate in 529 plans? Thnx for your time.

If you are on work visa in USA you are a resident alien and not a Non- Resident Alien. Dont confuse resident alien with green card. You can do any kind of passive investing within the law if you are a resident alien meaning you reside in US and have a lawful job.
Same applies for stock investing, IRA, roth-IRA etc. To be extra certain you can contact the broker through whom you plan to get 529.
good luck
