Hello Upwork community.


I am in the process of creating my Upwork account. I am from the United States but am living in Germany at the moment. When creating my account, I set my location to the USA but I am now in the page where I need to recieve a verification code sent to a US phone number (as I am currently living in Germany, I do not have a US phone number) There seems to be no simple way for me to change my country to Germany as the location is already locked to the USA, and I can't seem to go back and change the country as well. Is there anything I can do?

Hi Leo, 

I have updated your country to Germany. You should now be able to update your address in your Settings page.

Hmm... This really should be easier to do... even if Upwork doesn't want freelancers to be able to change the country of residence indicated on their profile change on their own... At least make it clear how to ask for help doing so.


Provide a standard button or something that can be clicked to kick off a change-country-of-residence process.


Maybe providing that would make it even more likely that freelancers' profile information will be accurate.


Especially if said easy-to-use button would trigger a process that requires authentication of he country of residence through an Upwork employee.
