Hi! I am setting up my profile as a freelancer on Upwork and it is asking me to verify my location. I have tried to do it but they only accept UK passport, ID or Driver's license which I don't hold. I have been living in the UK since 2012 and I am wondering if there is any other documents that Upwork would accept in order to verify your location.

I moved to London a while ago but I don have a British passport or driving licence, as this is the only thing they want me to upload. I hold a pre-setteld status document where i can live and work here for 5 years but it was not accepted when i tried to submit it. So how do I register for UK only jobs?

Hello there. My name is Oluwaseyi. So, I recently moved to the UK for educational reasons (for about a year plus), I changed my address to where I stay in the UK but I don't have a British passport or driver's license to verify my location. Is there anything else I can do to verify my location?

Hi,

 

I live in the UK but I'm not a British citizen, I can't provide a UK driving license or a British passport, is there any way to verify my address for UK only postings using bank statements, utility bills or whatever?

 

Cheers,

Daniel
