Hi all,

I just joined Upwork and am supposed to provide proof of my residence in the UK. I am an expat with an official residence certificate for the UK, but I do not hold a UK passport or UK driving license, which seem to be the only documents accepted. Please advise!
Thanks

Mirko

Hi everyone!

 

As I started my freelance opportunities in this website, I'm having questions as to provide my ID file to Upwork because I am based in the UK for 3 years and am required to upload either the driver's license or a UK Passport.

The issue being I am not a UK citizen and my driving license is all in French. Is it okay if I upload my Passport while selecting the UK Passport option?

I searched through the forum but I don't seem to find an answer to this situation.

Regards,
Guillaume.

 If your licence is French and you've been in the UK three years you can't legally drive without getting a UK licence so why don't you just do that?

Hi Petra,

Do what? You mean getting a UK Driving License? I do not intend to drive here anyway as transports are everywhere around me, if needed. My Driving License dates back way before I came to the UK.

Thank you for the reply, I will oversee the process with the agent.

Hi!

I am having the same problem. Wish this could more clear when trying to verify the address. I do have a bank letter with my name and banks UK address and can provide my polish id or driving licence if needed. It just feels a bit discriminated for those people who are not UK residents but live here. Hope to hear back from You soon.
