Hi,

 

After a quick research I couldn't find anyone discussing this very topic. I am a EU citizen (French) who's been living in the UK for a year now. I'd like to verify my location to be able to apply to jobs that are open to UK residents only. Problem is, they require either a UK driving license or a UK passport to do so, which I do not have. Is there any way to provide something else ? 

 

Thanks,

 

Olivier.

Upwork seems to be pre-empting Brexit  big time.

This is sadly how I felt to be honest. Limiting the proof of location to documents that only UK citizens can obtain is effectively exluding people with other nationalities to apply to the job. I fail to see how this is non-discriminatory. I'm in touch with someone from the staff I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm originally from Finland, but I've been living in the UK for several years. So far, it's been very easy for EU citizens to live and work in the UK, as no special permits are needed. I'm registered as a freelancer in Britain under the HMRC, have a National Insurance Number etc.  Upwork keeps asking me to verify my location, but the only accepted documents are either British passport or a British driver's license. However, I don't have a British passport because I'm not British. I also don't have a British driver's license because I don't drive. Does this mean there is simply no way for me to verify my location?

Help, please Smiley Happy I want to verify my location, but I'm stuck. I live in the UK, but I'm an EU national, so I don't have a UK passport to confirm or a driving licence. Is there any other way for me to confirm my location and how? Smiley Happy

Hi, I currently have a UK Visa which allows me to work in the UK as a Canadian. How do I verify my location in this case?
