Can't change country

Hi Denis,

 

I'm sure if you raise a ticket with Upwork, they will help you straighten things out.

 

I'm based in the UK, and most of my clients are in the States, so don't worry about being based in the UK. That's the whole point of freelancing, the world is your clientbase. But you need to be honest and say you are based in the UK. Hopefully, Upwork will help you out with this. As it stands, your profile looks bad as you say you are based in the UK and willing to move to the States but your location says States. 

 

Best wishes,

 

Louisa

Do you know how to do that? Can't find anything. Thanks. :-)

You need to give your accurate information and place you live/work and you can't just say I am going to move there and put US in instead of the UK. You can still bid on US jobs or any others, but for non-US freelancers like ourselves there are some jobs we can't see from the US unfortunately.

Thanks Amanda, Thanks Luisa,

 

I picked up a random US addres with hope I can change it on my profile page. That's why my addres is US.

 

But I got stuck :-)

Ultimately you lied. Let's not put too fine a point on it.

But rest assured, you're not the only one who lies about their location and then finds themselves caught in the lie.

Hi Petra,

 

>> Ultimately you lied. Let's not put too fine a point on it.

That's your point. Not mine.

 

My point is to be able to change my country. Could you or somebody else please help me with that.

Thanks.

Thank you very much Joanne.

 

It would be nice if we put some info next to that first location field with explanation that the location is user's current location he/she lives and that user still will be able to search clients from other countries. It will decrease the number of posts like that raised on the forum.

 

Kind Regards.

 you can search in any country you want to, nothing prohibits that, except when a job posting is marked as US-only. 

Just a personal note: stay away from offering to move to the US, it is really not that simple, and most people hiring a freelancer will not be interested in sponsoring your move, they want to hire you on hourly basis, not full time. Also, never ever work on a tourist visa when in the US. I would remove that wording immediately, if I were you....
