Hi! How can I very my location if i don't have UK driver license or UK passaport? I'm from Portugal but I'm living in London now. I need help because if not I can't access to a lot jobs in UpWork. Thank you!
I would like to verify my location. I'm based in the UK.
However, freelancers on Upwork are requested to provide either a British passport or a UK driving licence to complete this step. Why? I am based in London but don't have a British passport or a driver's licence. I understand the need for regulation but this inflexible and incomplete verification technique is discriminatory. UK residents with a right to work might not necessarily have either of those two. I can provide bills made in my name, even on a monthly basis if necessary. The UK is my home and my base! Please let me know how we can proceed to verify my location in a more straightforward way.
I also strongly suggest you revise your verification processes. UpWork is a place for people to find flexible work online, it's a wonderfully liberating platform, and that's why it's surprising the opportunities go through such an inflexible filter.
Thank you for your time.
I just submitted my location verification (my passport) and it instantly failed and has now locked my account. All the help articles said verification takes 48 hours so I'm assuming it's an error as it was a scanned copy of my passport.It says I can't submit any proposals. Can you tell me where to submit my passport copy to review this?
