Hi! I'm a freelancer based in the United Kingdom, and I am trying to verify my location so as to access UK-only jobs. However, I don't hold a British drivers license or passport. Instead, I have a Spanish passport through which I am legally entitled to live and work in the UK until 2022. I also have a British National Insurance Number, through which I pay taxes. Is there any way I can verify my location without the two listed documents?

Hi Alejandra, 


You should be able to do a manual location verification. The Customer Support Team will reach out to you to assist you further with your concern.

Hi,

 

I recently moved to the UK and applied for my Upwork account. Now after being accepted, I am being asked to verify my location. The issue is that they are asking for a British id or passport but since I do not have these documents (Originally from Sweden) I can not proceed with the process.

 

How do I solve this issue?

Hi there,

I am a Dutch national living in London for the past 7 years. I am a permanent resident but do not have a driver’s license or a British passport and as such, am not able to verify my location. Please can you advise how I might be able to confirm my London location in another way? I have an official British residency document card.

Thank you!

Hi there, I live in the UK permanently but I'm not a British Citizen. Is there any other way to confirm my residence? I can submit my ID (not British) and a bank statement to confirm my address s here in England?

 

Many thanks,

 

Melinda
