Re: EU citizen based in UK not able to verify location

Hello everyone,

 

I've recently joined UpWork and while trying to verify my UK location, I've realized there are only two official ways to do so: with a British passport or a British driving license. The problem is I have none of these. I have bank statements, work agreements and tenancy agreements. Is there any way that I could verify my location with one of these?

Thank you, much appreciated.

I'm trying to respond to jobs in the UK. I am French. I live in London. I don't drive a car as it's pointless in London. I've been living here for 10 years+, and have the settled status alongside my French passport. How can I apply for jobs in my country if only UK passports or UK driving licences are accepted?

Hi, I would appreciate some advice on how to proceed. I need to verify my location using ID. I do not have a passport nor do I have a valid driving license (it is out of date by about 10 years). What I do have is a government-issued voting ID card that has my photo on it along with my name. I have tried to submit this but the only two options is either under Passport or Driving license and neither accepts this photo ID. Can someone please help me find where I can upload my ID? Please and thank you.
