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.

Hello!

 

Bojan S, could you please check my account. I want to know whether I  need to complete any verification process. There was no option to upload my documents in profile settings.

Hi Chrystyna,

 

Thank you for following up. I checked and it doesn't look like you are 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.

 

Thank you!

Hello,

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

Where can I find the ID verification link?

Hi Nikola,

 

One of our team members will resend the ticket to you as soon as possible with detailed instructions on how to complete this short process. Thank you.

Hi,

 

I did video verification before 7 days ago. I would like to verify my ID and get the badge. I think it's more easier to get a job with a badge. I don't have any option it my settings to verify the ID. How can I do that?

 

Thank you

Hi Miso,

 

At this time, only earning freelancers are eligible/required to earn the โ€œIdentity Verifiedโ€ badge. If you become eligible/required, we will notify you when you log into your Upwork account to complete the verification process by uploading a non-expired government-issued photo ID and meeting with us for a short video call. After weโ€™ve confirmed your identity, the new badge will be displayed on your profile. 

 

Thank you!

Hi I want to verify my account but it asks me for passport, but I only have my Drivers licence and Government ID.

 

Please help.

Hi Dillan,

 

To complete the identity verification for earning an Identity Verified badge, you will need to 

 

  1. Provide a valid government-issued ID
  2. Complete a video verification call

Here's the help article for more information. Could you please confirm where you found the information that a passport is required? Thank you.

~ Joanne
Upwork

Hi Joanne,

 

Is government verification ID is the only ID I can provide? As far as I understand I can provide my international passport as a verification ID and it will be enough. Is that correct?

Hi Larry,

 

I checked your account and see that you already have an open ticket regarding your concern with the acceptable documents for ID verification. One of our team members will update your ticket and provide you with more information. Thanks!

Thank you for the reply Avery. They sent me an email requesting I upload my ID along with detailed instructions to do so under settings. However, when I go into the settings there is no identity verification link. I am also receiving messages stating they are awaiting me to complete the verification.

Hi Kelly,

 

I checked the link provided in your support ticket and it's working on our end as expected. May you please clear your cache and cookies or log in with another browser to check if you`re able to use the verification link provided in your support ticket. Once you initiate the process our agent will follow up to guide you through the process and advise you directly about any of your concerns.

 

Let us know if the issue persists.

 

Thank you.

Hi Tam,

 

Unfortunately, you won't be able to return your proposals, you will need to send new proposals if you would like to apply for the same jobs again. Thank you.

Hi Ahmed, 

The Rising Talent status is assigned automatically when a freelancer meets the requirements listed here. This process is working as designed and we can't specify a reason why a freelancer is or isn't eligible for receiving the Rising Talent badge. Once you qualify, you should receive a notification letting you know.
