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...
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.
I have the same problem. I haven't a British driving licence or passport. I have a biometric residence permit card, which shows I'm eligible to work in the UK.
How can I verify my location?
I'd like to submit proposals for uk only jobs. I need to verify location by submitting british passport. Problem is... I live and work in the UK, but I have a greek passport. What other ways are there to verify my location?
I've shared your concern with our team and one of our team members will reach out to you via support ticket to assist you in completing the location verification process, thank you.
