Unfortunately at the moment, the verification process can't be requested from the freelancer side. Once it's requested our team will reach out to you via ticket with detailed instructions. Thank you.
Hi Blessel Q,
Don't worry about that. Upwork will send you a request for verification, you will get a notice on your Upwork freelancer profile. If Upwork accept your registration, go, start sending proposals for jobs and when it's time, upwork will send you a request.
Yes, Upwork is very flexible about this. You do NOT need to use your desktop computer. You do not need to use a detachable webcam. You may use a laptop computer with a built-in camera. You may borrow someone's computer. You may go to an Internet cafe. You may go to a friend's or relative's home to use a computer with a camera.
You may even be able to use a cell phone or portable device. Upwork just wants to verify your identity. They may make special arrangements with you if you contact them. But the simplest thing to do is use a Mac OS X or Windows OS computer.
