I've been living in the UK for 8 years but up until recently (due to brexit etc) I never cared about getting any kind of ID here. Now I have a settled status however, on Upwork I cannot use this to prove my location. I dont have a UK drivers liences or Id nor do I want to get them (costs some money to do so and takes time). is there any other way?
Upwork has a whole page about this.
They're very flexible.
A driver's license is NOT required.
May use passport, government-issued ID, Green Card with photo ID, etc.
Honestly, they seem to be bending over backwards to allow anybody in any location to be able to do verification...
