I live in the UK, but I don't have British citizenship, nor do I have a UK driving license. I could provide a bank statement or a bill under my name to prove residency, but the verification process specifies that I can only upload either a passport or driving license.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? What would you advise me to do?
My situation is as follows: I'm a Romanian working in the UK and I would like to verify my location. Unfortunately the confirmation process only allows me to add UK driver's license and/or British Passport.
Is there an email or phone number I could contact to sort this out? I have proof of address ^^
You should be able to complete your location verification by submitting a government issued photo ID and a document with proof of residence dated within 6 months. A member of the Customer Support Team will reach out to you to assist you with your location verification.
I'm new to Upwork and I am living and working in London, UK. The only forms of location verification accepted seem to be Drivers License and British Passport. As a Commonwealth citizen (Australia), I have a two year UK Working Visa, but we don't have British passports and we are advised to use our Australian Dirvers License, which are valid here.
I have the British Residency Permit Card (BRP), which is issued when you enter the country. It is a government form of photo ID card, which verifies that you are eligible to live and work in the UK. Is there any way I can use this to verify my location instead?
We do have several options on how to finish this verification process and one of our team members will reach out to you as soon as possible to assist you further. Thank you.
Hello Upwork community! I'm fairly new here, and have been unable to verify my location, because the UK platform only allows you to verify if you have a British passport or UK driving license! I am Canadian, living here on an Ancestral Visa BRP, which allows me to work as if I were British. Please any ideas? Thanks so much in advance. :-)
I am currently trying to set up my profile but I'm having difficulty with proceeding. I am being asked to verify my account with a phone number and my phone is currently broken. Surely it would benefit more people (including those with international numbers or those having other issues with the verification process) if there was a way to verify your account through email and have the option of adding your phone number in addition later.
