I am unable to verify my location with the documents required, I'm a Swedish citizen permanently residing in the UK. I have plenty of documents for proof of address, but not a UK drivers license or passport. The current requirements are discriminatory and inaccurate, the ID documenta do not show residency, only nationality. Please change your policy so I can work in my home location.

Others have reported that they were able to verify with their permanent residence document.

Also, you actually *can* take and work on jobs on Upwork without verifying your location, just not take (or even see) jobs that are set to "UK only" - which are the minority anyway.

Hi there,

 

I was prompted to add verify myself by adding a copy of my government ID which I did. It then said that the upload was rejected and gave no indication as to why and froze my account. Is there someone to speak to regarding this?

 

Regards

Hello,

 

I live in the UK but I don't have any UK ID. I have a French passport and drivers license. I can provide UK utility bills.

How can I get my location verified?

 

Thanks in advance
