Hi Goran, thanks. However, something weird has happened.
I received an email with a link to submit my documents, and I did so. It looked more like an automated letter than a member of the team reaching me. However, I submitted my passport and a proof of address (bank statement) as requested.
Well, apparently it has been rejected...it says that my ID type in not accepted. It is a regular, valid passport.
Now I am really really confused. And concerned.
I checked and saw that you already updated your ticket with this information and your documents, we appreciate that! Please allow time for our team to carefully investigate all facts you provided and once they do they will reach out to you with more details. Thank you for patience!

Hello, I'm also an European Citizen living in the Uk (have been working here for 5 years, I'm also registered as self employed on hmrc). I don't have a british passport nor a british drivers licence, but I do have a national insurance number, a tax reference number, proof of address, and do not need a work permit to work in the UK. Can someone contact me to confirm my location? I've only just registered and I'm looking forward to get started, but this issue is an absolute bummer and it's beyond discriminative (and barely legal I'd add! Never ever have i had an issue with proving my right to work in the UK!!) (
I'm sorry to hear that you feel this way. One of our team members will reach out to you directly and assist you with your location verification process. Thank you for your patience.
