Hi there, 


I'm living in the UK, however I'm not from the UK, I'm originally from Poland. 


I have a british bank account and a british address, as this is where I live.


Now, since I don't have a british passport or ID, I can't verify my self - I got that. 


So let me change it to Poland, and you want my address for bank reasons, but I have no Polish address. 


What the hell. What am I supposed to put, a fake address in Poland while using UK information, but can't verify my self as being in the UK? 


Right now I'm actually in Poland, which I come once in a while, however I stay in a hostel. I'm reported that I'm outside Poland and reported in the UK that I live there. Hopefully you understand my situation.


If a support team member is going to contact me, please don't send me a link telling me I need to have "british passport or ID", like last time, because I know that. 


Isn't the bank enough with my name saying I live in the UK? The address is there, the bank address and the address on UpWork is the same.

I need help verifying my location. I'm based in the UK and I don't have either a UK Driving License or a UK Passport. I do have an European one.


Kind regards,

I am an American living abroad perminently (I have residence permits and married to a UK/EU national) and my question relates to verifying location. I have been asked to upload a UK driving lisence and or passport; however, I don't hold either of those! I have US ones. I am sure this is an issue for other people who live and work in countries different to their passport nationality. 


I hope that a support speicialist can address this issue. What are we ex-pats to do? Because clearly one's location has nothing whatsoever to do with the nationality on one's identity documents.


Awaiting advice.
