I am in the United States on a J2 visa and got my Employment Authorization Document and SNN. I will pay taxes this year and I just wanted to make sure I could do freelance work through Upwork." If yes..How can I verify my Identity?
Did you manage to work as a freelancer for upwork in the end ?
My situation is similar to yours :
I curently Leave in Lousiana with a J-2 VISA and I just received my Employment Authorization Document along with my SSN. It says on it : "VALID FOR WORK ONLY WITH DHS AUTHORIZATION"
I also have a temporary Driving Licence that I use everywhere when they ask for my ID.
Is that enough to start working on upwork ?
Also, where do you give Upwork all this paper work ?
Thanks for your time
I am in the same situation as Sindhu - I'm in the US on a J-2 visa, I have an Employment Authorization Document, a Social Security Number and a consultancy business officially registered with the City of Los Angeles. I pay taxes here. Why should I not be able to work through Upwork? Any other places that I've needed to verify my ID - to open a bank account in the US, for example - they have accepted my Dutch national ID card plus proof of address.
It would be great if you could explain the reasoning behind this.
