My account was placed on hold after UpWork was unable to verify my identity (I uploaded two different types of ID and neither worked). What can I do to get the hold removed?

Oh great,

getting jobs has become extremely difficult to near impossible already, now you are going to encurage clients to limit their offer to US based freelancers only - thanks a lot from a Bangkok based freelancer

Hi!

I just shifted to USA and want to start freelance work for Indian clients on Upwork.

I am on F2 Visa here. 

Can I work for USA clients?

Can I work for clients in India?

Hi Priyanka,

 

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.
