Hi Team-

 

I am not able to verify my location in US, my green card application is in process and I have my Social Security card with me. I have not gotten my Drivers License made yet, it will take me some time as I have to do preparation and then take driving tests. I do not want to waste anymore time in my earnings through Upwork.

I can provide following proofs that I am living in US and in the process of settlement. -

 

EAD Card

- Social Security Card

- My Bank Of America account Bank Statement

- The notification of Action from USIC on my green card process

 

Please help me here, I will be grateful to you.

 

Regards,

Atif Yousaf

Atif:

It is good that you are working toward getting your driver's license.


But you do NOT need a driver's license for Upwork verification. Upwork will accept other forms of identification. You can use a passport or a non-driving picture ID that you can get from the DMV.

Go to your local police station with your passport and ask them to verify your identity with a stamp

If you are from the EU then you should have an appropriate id card

 

You seem to be a night owl as you posted this question at 4am

 

All the best

Hi Goran,

 

Can I upload my EU ID card where it asks me for a British Passport? Why is there no option on the website to upload non-British ID documents?

 

Regards

Mani
