Kinda struggling here. To verify my location I have two choices. Drivers Licence or Passport of the country itself. 

 

What are foreigners that don't drive supposed to do?

Hi, I am a European citizen living and working in the UK and I do not have a UK driving license or British passport, which are the only documents recognised as valid to verify identity. Is there another way to verify that I am currently working and residing in the UK or upload a different document that provides proof of address, e.g. bank statement?

I am currently living in the UK but I am of another nationality. When asked to verify my location from Upwork, the only options are british passport or UK driving license (which I don't have). I can't apply to any jobs without resolving this - any advice is very much appreciated!

How do I prove my UK citizenship if I have no drivers licence and my passport is so out of date that the content of page 2 is completely different to a current passport?

 

How do I contact someone at Upworks about this; I can find no way of contacting customer service directly, email, text message, web chat or otherwise?

 

Thanks

Hi everyone!

I'm new here, and i've been trying to apply for some jobs but i need to verify my location. I've been living in the UK for some years, however i'm not a british citizen or hold a british driver license. Can someone help me with that? Already tried the chat, but was useless.

Thanks!!

Hi all!
I have exactly the same issue. Unfortunately, there isn't much documentation on this subject.
I've read that it should be possible to use a government-issued document (with a photo), but not sure where to upload or send it to when the only options on the verification form are UK Passport or UK Driving License.
Would like some clarification, as this is stopping me from applying to "UK Jobs only".

Thank you for your time.
