Dear Upwork team,

 

After taking some years off Upwork, I'm back trying to set up my profile and struggling to apply to some UK jobs due to the documents required for the location verification: "Simply upload an image of your U.K. driving licence or British passport".

I'm a UK resident, with all the rights to work in the country, however, I'm not a British citizen and don't have either of those 2 documents. 

Can I provide another form of location identification like my UTR number, for example? 

 

Many thanks,

Camelia M.

I have the same issue (I am an EU citizen).

 

I cannot seem to identify my location without a UK passport/drivers licence. I do have other documentation available (bank statemetns, council tax etc.) Not sure where I can upload any of this information for assessment ?

Hi,

 

I need some help. I tried to apply for a UK based job (My Location is London) and it said that I had to verify my location with a British Passport or a UK Drivers License. I have neither of these as I am not a British citizen or a licensed driver. 

Is there a way to verify with bank/billing documentation?

Good afternoon,  I live in the UK but do not hold a UK passport. I would be grateful if a support team representative could contact me/raise a ticket so I share other proofs of my residency (payslips/bills whatever works for you)

Thanks,

Diana
