Hi everyone, 

 

I have the same problem. I haven't a British driving licence or passport. I have a biometric residence permit card, which shows I'm eligible to work in the UK. 

 

How can I verify my location?

 

Cheers,

Hello!

I'd like to submit proposals for uk only jobs. I need to verify location by submitting british passport. Problem is... I live and work in the UK, but I have a greek passport. What other ways are there to verify my location?

Thanks,

Elpis

I moved to the UK and set up a company with a valid visa,

however, Upwork only accepts British driving license or British passport for location verification.

I have many other documents proving my status but I cannot submit them,

In order to bid for work within the UK, I need to verify my location, is there any manual way to do that?

I'm trying to place a bid for a UK project since I'm in the UK, but the only way to confirm is with a British passport or driver. As an immigrant, I'm studying here on a Visa, which means my residence permit is not valid?
Why isnt there another way to verify location?
