Hi Enzo,

 

If the person has a legal permit or a type of visa needed to legally work in the U.S., they can register and work on Upwork as a freelancer. To be able to verify your location and submit proposals to those jobs with US location requirement, you will need either of the following - a driver’s license, state ID card, US passport, Green Card. People located in the U.S. will need to complete their W-9 form in their Settings in order to access their earnings. We do suggest talking to a legal adviser about completing W-9 form and the information/documents necessary for it. Unfortunately, we won't be able to legally advise about it.

same here. My ID has my last name first so UpWork is rejecting it. So annoying, and can't find a phone number or email to get help from a real person at UpWork. Anyone out there tat Upwork HQ that can solve this??

I'm trying to apply for a job, and am trying to upload a scan of my State ID, but it says that my name does not match. Well,  it certainly does match, so I'm not sure what to do. What should I do next?
