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?

Hi, 

 

I live and work in the UK since 2014. I would like to send a proposal to many jobs that require "UK only freelancers". I can upload my passport but given that my nationality is not English, it does not recognise it as valid.

 

I live and pay taxes in the UK, why would i not be allowed to apply for projects that are UK residents only?

I'm a UK-based EU citizen, and when trying to verify my location there are only two options: British Passport or UK Driving Licence. I don't have any of it, how can I verify my location then? Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

 

I moved to the UK (London) and wanted to get my location verified. But I do not have UK Passport or driving liscence as I am a EU citizen.  How can I get my location verified?
