Hi, 

I am Latvian citizen, currently living in the UK under the EU settlement scheme. Therefore, I have Latvian passport and Latvian driving license. Could you help me please verify them?

Hello!

 

I have recently created an Upwork account and I would like to apply for UK-only jobs. I have been living in the UK for almost 6 months now, and I even have documents to prove it (bank statements, for example). However, I am an EU national, and I only have my national ID card, passport and drving license. I possess pre-settled status (limited leave to enter) the UK, but neither a British passport nor driving license. Would someone be able to suggest a way for me to verify my location?

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi Support/Community

I'm trying to apply for a job which requires the freelancer to be in the UK. The Upwork platform sytem to prove location is to upload a British passport and driving licence. I don't have either of those things because I'm Irish... and I am in the UK. I'm also perfectly qualified to do this job.

This way of proving location (or indeed suitability for this job) is crazy. Even if I had a British passport, does that mean I would be suitable?

I am in fact super qualified for this job because I'm an expert on the topic.

Sad...

I live in London UK, and have right work. I do not have passport or driving license. Can I use my Biometric Resident Permit BRP for verification?
