Hello, I have opened my account as freelance illustrator when I was in USA. (never got a chance to work via upwork there due to busy schedule) Now, due to Covid19 we have been moved to UK and I have done changes in my upwork profile. Since I am new to upwork I have to learn a lot, While trying to submit a first proposal I was directd to submit my location varification. Now I don't have UK driving licence and neither British Pssport. But, I have work visa and BRP card. Can anyone please help me with what are the best ways to get verified my profile or my location changes? Or creating completly new profile makes more sense? I really want to get started working as soon as possible and I have received an email from upwork stating the notification "use your expiring connects soon" which i would not like to get expired of course!

I wold relly appreciate if anyone can help me in this situation. Thank you.

I am having the same problem.

 

I moved from Istanbul to London. I have a residence and work permit. The government gave me a BRP card for this. So, I changed my location to new London. Upwork system is asking me for a Driver License card or a Britain Passport for vericifation. However, neither is possible. Why just one of these two? Alternate way is not possible?
