I would like to apply for U.K. jobs and for that reason I need to prove I reside in the UK. I do not have a British Passport nor do I have a British driving licence. I do have my permanent residency card though stating that I live and reside in the UK. Can someone from UpWork team manually review my document, please?
I am having trouble verifying my location. I am being asked by Upwork for an UK passport of a UK drivers licence. I do not have either of those unfortunately. I have been living and working in the UK since 2013 but my passport is from Ireland and I do not drive. I have bank statements with UK addresses going back to 2015. Does anyone know how I can resolve this?
Jobs with location requirement - I am a European citizen living in the UK for 7 years and I am not able to use up work for UK because you ask for a British passport or a British driving license. I find it extremely discriminatory. I can prove my location in another way but you’re not giving any options. How could you fix the situation?
I'm sorry for any trouble this may have caused you. Please know that Upwork doesn't tolerate discrimination. I've shared your concern with the team, and one of our agents will reach out and assist you directly via a support ticket in completing the location verification process. Thank you.
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.
Hi, im trying to set up a an account and when i submit my UK driving license as a identity check the upwork system does not reconigise it.
I am unable to contact any support staff to un lock my account, any help here?
I checked your account, and it seems like you already have reached out to our team directly. One of our team members will update your ticket and assist you further in verifying your location. Thank you!
