I recently moved to UK from India and when I tried to apply for few projects which are for freelancers located in UK only, Upwork is asking for UK verification,

 

It just gives only 2 options for verifictaion - UK driving license and British Passport. But I am on Indian passport with ILR (Indefinite leaveto remain) and I don't drive so not having local driving license.

 

Can someone at Upwork please provide me the option for Visa proofs instead of these 2 proofs. UK home office does approve all of ILR holder to work freely in UK and I think Upwork should also allow this.

I'm trying to verify my location. I live in London, UK, but I'm not a UK citizen. Therefore I don't have a British ID or drivers license. It doesn't let me scan an alternative document such as a bank statement or sth. Thank you! Anybody knows what to do?

Hello,

I'm interrested in a job which has a location requirement. To verify my location, Upwork asks a passeport or driving licence delivered by the required country.

I am a resident of this country but not a citizen so I don't have these legal documents. I have their equivalents from the country I am an actually citizen, though.

So my questions are: Is the requirement about residency or citizenship ?

If it is residency, how can I be verified ? (My passeport was rejected)

If it is citizenship, how can I access to the jobs reserved to my country, since my address differs ?

Best regards

Hi Olivier

 

Having the same issue and was wondering if you managed to get verified not having a British ID.

I did ask the question before but nobody ever replied Smiley Sad

I'm trying to apply to a UK posting - however I've been asked to verify my location by uploading an image of a U.K. driving licence/British passport. 

 

I have neither of these - is there another way for me to verify my location?

 

Thanks

Haseeb
