Hi,

 

I have the same issue. I'm Spanish, I've been living in the UK for more than 5 years. My company is based in the UK and I'm unable to verify my location because I don't have a British passport or a UK driving license.

 

Can someone help me?

Thanks

Same issue, I do not have a UK passport but I have lived in the UK for more than 5 years and still live here. I have reached out to your agents and their answer is "there is nothing they can do about it."

Is this a way for upwork to discriminate against people who live legally in a different country than the country they are a citizen in? Also, do you have any plans to solve this? As I have sent in my ID and a proof of my address and it was still "nothing to be done about it because this is out of scope of their support."

 

I would very much appreciate a proper answers. 

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

I'm a Croatian citizen living in the UK, I can provide bank statements as proof of address (and Croatian ID and/or passport). Please have someone from the support team contact me as-well to assist me in the location verification process.

 

Thank you.

 

 

Kind regards

Hi,

I am a norwegian citizen living in the UK (Glasgow, Scotland), so I don't have a british passport OR a driver's licence.

Is there anyway of verifying without these documents?

Best,

Hiya there!

 

I have just joined Upwork, and I am not very sure that I know how this location thing works...

I am spanish but been living in Glasgow (UK) for almost 3 years, unfortunately that is not time enough to apply for the citizenship and therefore I don´t have an UK passport and my driving license is spanish...So it seems impossible for me to apply to any of the UK jobs I´ve been seeing...is there any alternative solution to this?

I can provide proof of address or my Nin as well, please let me know.

 

Thanks in advance,

M.
