I have rights to live and work in the U.K. How do I verify my location, when upwork requires a passport?


Use your residency permit?

I've been living in the UK for 8 years but up until recently (due to brexit etc) I never cared about getting any kind of ID here. Now I have a settled status however, on Upwork I cannot use this to prove my location. I dont have a UK drivers liences or Id nor do I want to get them (costs some money to do so and takes time). is there any other way?

 

 

thank you

Upwork has a whole page about this.

 

They're very flexible.

A driver's license is NOT required.

May use passport, government-issued ID, Green Card with photo ID, etc.

 

Honestly, they seem to be bending over backwards to allow anybody in any location to be able to do verification...

Hi Andreea, 

 

You should be able to verify your location with any government issued photo ID, and a document with a proof of residence within the past six months. I have shared your account information with the Customer Support Team, and a member of the team will reach out to you to assist you with your manual location verification.
