I have just joined Upwork, and I am not very sure that I know how this location thing works...
I am spanish but been living in Glasgow (UK) for almost 3 years, unfortunately that is not time enough to apply for the citizenship and therefore I don´t have an UK passport and my driving license is spanish...So it seems impossible for me to apply to any of the UK jobs I´ve been seeing...is there any alternative solution to this?
I can provide proof of address or my Nin as well, please let me know.
Thanks in advance,
Like other members in this thread, I live in the UK but I don't have a British passport or driver's licence to get verified. I have dual citizenship (French and British) so I could provide a British Citizenship Certificate, French ID or proof of address (NIN, etc.).
Would it please be possible to be verified without the required documents?
One of our team members will reach out to you directly via support ticket and assist you further with your verification process, thank you for reaching out to us.
I am sure Upwork has been helping many EU FLs living in the UK with their verification. However,I think it is time to mention, that despite the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, the UK Home Office has now published the rules and regs concerning legal status for EU citizens living in the UK and how to register. This can be now be done online by some EU citizens, or as from March 2019 and it is obligatory (unless by some happy miracle Article 50 were to be revoked). In short, EU citizens will be granted the right to stay if they have lived for five consecutive years in the country. If they have lived there for two years, they can apply for pre-settlement status. The
registration fee is £65.00 and the cut-off point (for the moment), is June 2021. r
Upwork should also take note of the changes about to happen in the UK as freelancing/taxation is likely to be affected as well.
ETA: (19.51) Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, scrapped the registration fee about the time I posted this.
