I tried to apply for a job. It asked me to upload ID to prove I'm based in the UK. I uploaded a copy of my passport. It said that the name didn't match my profile name, but it did. Now I can't try again because it says I've attempted too many times and now I can't apply for this job. What do I do? This is ridiculous.
I tried to submit a proposal when I was asked to complete a verification process. I uploaded a copy of my British passport however the verification failed - all I got was an email notification that my account has been put on hold and that the previous proposal I spent a whole day preparing has been suspended. I have not been given an opportunity to resubmit another copy or given information on how to ublock this. Please advise, thank you.
I am a freelancer located in the UK and I am having a valid government-issued Biometric Residence Permit card as my residence proof but Upwork requires only a Passport and license. I do not own a vehicle so I do not have a license and I am not a British citizen but I live here now for more than 3 Years.
Due to this issue, I am not able to apply for the jobs which require the UK as a location. Please, anyone, help to solve the issue as I am new to the platform and missing out on the opportunities due to this.
Thank you in advance.
I recently moved to UK from India and when I tried to apply for few projects which are for freelancers located in UK only, Upwork is asking for UK verification,
It just gives only 2 options for verifictaion - UK driving license and British Passport. But I am on Indian passport with ILR (Indefinite leaveto remain) and I don't drive so not having local driving license.
Can someone at Upwork please provide me the option for Visa proofs instead of these 2 proofs. UK home office does approve all of ILR holder to work freely in UK and I think Upwork should also allow this.
