Since december 2019, my account has been stuck on the "Thank you for completing your Upwork verification upload. Please allow 3-4 business days for your verification to be processed.".
Something has clearly gone wrong. There is no way for me to proceed beyond this point and I have received no further instructions via email.
Thanks for reaching out to us. I followed up with our team and you should be all set now. Let us know if you need further assistance.
Hello everyone, Upwork requesting to verify my location (U.K.) and allows only UK passport or driving license, i have only biometrical residence permit (student visa) and does not accept this. Is there any other way i can verify my location ?
I have been trying to set up an account as a freelancer in the U.K. (where I have been living for almost 3,5 years and even study there). I do not have a British passport nor a British driver's license, so I am currently unable to verify my account. What am I supposed to do to right now? I cannot find a customer service email address either.
You don't need to have UK documents to be verified as a UK freelancer. You just need some form of government issued ID. If Upwork requires further proof of residency, they may request it, but your IP address usage should do the trick. I've used Upwork in three different countries as a UK citizen but verified my account using my Singapore government pass.
Now, if you don't have government issued ID from any country, then that's a problem, but I don't think that's the case here.

She is asking for UK location (!!!) verification, not ID verification.
She DOES require UK documentation to verify her location being in the UK, so she can apply to UK only jobs.

That's because your location is (correctly) set to where you live. You did not try to verify your location to be in the UK.
