Re: Location Selection Expanding to UK Clients

I am a bit confused as to why you only accept UK passports for UK based freelancers when there are millions of EU citizen legally residing in the UK (but do not hold UK passports).

 

The system you have created prevents the majority of freelancers of being able to get UK clients contacting them.

 

Please advise as I reside in London and have an EU passport.

Thank you, Lena. I am happy to hear it was not a systemic problem.

Can I suggest that a DVLA licence summary is deemed valid ID by Upwork? Its online, digital, faster than going through my stuff to find the old paper version somewhere!

Thanks for marginalizing people in my situation a little further.

Good thing that you don't have to compete against freelancers charging a 1/4 of your rate Smiley Happy 

 

I would prefer that they consider the EU as a block though.

1. There are "freelancers charging a 1/4 of your rate" also within the EU also within each country.

 

2. That would exclude the UK soon. Apart from some other European countries that are non-EU.
