Hi I am unable to apply to some jobs because I can't verify my location. I am an EU citizen living in the UK and to verify my location I am being asked to upload my British Driving Licence or my British passport, which is not possible. Are there any other documents I could provide to verify my location? I would appreciate your soonest answer as I plan to apply to some jobs which strictly require my location to be verified. Thanks in advance for your support!

Hi,

 

I confirmed my identity by sending in my permanent residency card for the UK and having the visual chat. However, I'm blocked from applying for UK-only jobs. When I click 'verify' I am asked to present a UK passport only.

 

I assume this must be some kind of mistake because it would be discrimination otherwise. Would anyone be able to help me with the next steps?

 

Much appreciated. : )

So I recently signed up to upwork and have noticed that I need to verify my location by using a passport that is native to the U.K. However I migrated here 10 years ago and I still have my european passport. Is there any way to verify my location otherwise, or will I have to stick to the worse jobs?

You can use a driver's license or other form of official photo I.D. to confirm your location. But you might be disappointed when you see that there are just as many low-paying jobs in the UK marketplace as in the general one. (I've found lots of good clients in countries besides the UK, too.)
