ID Verification

Hi there,

I would like to verify my ID.  I haven't been asked for it yet though. But the problem is I can't find any link to get started.

Where can I find the ID verification link?

 

Thanks much for your time.

Hi
Identity is not very verified in my account. Please verify my ID.

Hi Md,

 

It looks like you are not yet required to complete this step. If you are required, youโ€™ll be notified upon log in to complete the verification process by uploading a non-expired government-issued photo ID and meeting with us for visual verification. After weโ€™ve confirmed your identity, the new badge will be displayed on your profile.

Hello UPteam,

 

I recently received a message that I need to be verified. Although, I already have several jobs completed on Upwork. I remember that I already submitted some of my ID for verification.

 

Now I have a new accepted job, but Upwork requires me to verify again. When I click get verified an error appears, please check the screenshot below. 

 

Thank you in advance

Hello dear workers! I need help with my ID verification!
First, i am new on upwork. My ID document is some damaged, so I just scanned other document which i realized (after read the rules) it is wrong.
Is there another way to verify my ID? Just for video call for example, because it's really hard to get a new ID document in my country (Venezuela) and it could take months.
I don't have passport or something else, just my damaged ID document.
Thank you for reading and for the support!

Hi Ronald,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. Please check out this help article for the list of acceptable documents for verification.

Hello Maryem,

 

I checked and it doesn't look like you are required to complete any verification at the moment. The team will let you know if there is a need for any verification in the future.

 

Thank you
