Hi, I would like to ask how can I prove I am based in the UK not having UK drivers license and currently being abroad. I am polish national but at the same time enterpreneur based in Manchester. What can I do ?

Hi there!

I would like to apply for U.K. jobs and for that reason I need to prove I reside in the UK. I do not have a British Passport nor do I have a British driving licence. I do have my permanent residency card though stating that I live and reside in the UK. Can someone from UpWork team manually review my document, please?

Hi,

 

I am having trouble verifying my location. I am being asked by Upwork for an UK passport of a UK drivers licence. I do not have either of those unfortunately. I have been living and working in the UK since 2013 but my passport is from Ireland and I do not drive. I have bank statements with UK addresses going back to 2015. Does anyone know how I can resolve this?

 

Many thanks,

 

Richard

Jobs with location requirement - I am a European citizen living in the UK for 7 years and I am not able to use up work for UK because you ask for a British passport or a British driving license. I find it extremely discriminatory. I can prove my location in another way but you’re not giving any options. How could you fix the situation?
