For location verification Upwork needs your passport? Wrong information.

Use your residency permit?

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?

 

 

thank you
