I just joined upwork and now I'm stuck at location verification.

 

I live in the UK but I'm not from here. I'm an immigrant. Why can't there be an option list for other international residents? It feels like Upwork is very short minded and difficult toward skilled worker migrants....

Hello,

 

I am also currently based in the UK with a residence permit. Unfortunately, I cannot verify my location since there is no option for the residence permits. Can anyone help me to verify my location in an alternative way since I have neither a British passport nor a driving licence.

 

Thanks.

Hi All,
When I log in to my Upwork account I get asked to verify my account and submit a UK driving license or Uk passport, which I don't have. I have an Italian passport and an Irish driving license. 

I am an already verified member in Upwork. I did the verification back in 2016 when I joined Upwork and didn't have any problem. At the time of the verification I was resident in Ireland.
