It's been a very long time since I tried using this site; I had created this account back when it was still oDesk and forgot about it until now.

 

Having unshelved said account, I'm still wondering about the verification process. Anything I should expect now?

Hi Alistair,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us. I checked and it seems that you aren't required to complete any verification process at the moment. The team will let you know if there is a need for any verification process in the future. Meantime, you can check these help articles for more information about the verification processes on Upwork.

 

Thank you.

Doesn't quite explain what I'm seeing, to be honest.

Hi Alistair,


Rest assured, you`re all set up. There's no need to complete any verifications at the moment. Once It's requested, our team will reach out to you with detailed instructions on how to complete your verification. Thank you.

ID: Not provided as of now as I am waiting for my ID to be released by government issuers.
Video verification: Completed.

 

Question: Will I suffer from this rule? "What happens if I do not pass the verification process?"

Freelancers that are required to verify but do not do so will have their accounts placed on hold. The hold will prevent freelancers from withdrawing earnings, submitting proposals to new jobs, accepting direct hires, or showing up in search results. Any active proposals that have been submitted will also be canceled. The hold will not affect your ability to work on existing contracts. Once you successfully pass the verification process, this hold will be removed."

Hi Amiel,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us. If you are unable to complete your verification at this moment a hold will be placed on your account. However, when you get your ID, you can come back, complete the verification and the temporary hold on your account will be lifted. 

 

Thank you.

Hi Sehrish, 

I checked your account and can confirm that you are not being requested to verify your account just yet. Once requested, you should receive an email, or a notification in your Upwork account to complete your verification. 

If you are requested, please try to submit any government-issued ID you have and if there are any issues, the team will reach out to you directly to assist you further.

Hi Sehrish, 

Please know that we do not verify a freelancer's account upon request. This happens randomly, or if the team finds the need to verify your account. 

If your domicile is a government-issued ID, you can submit it for the team's review when you are asked to verify your account.
