I am getting following message on my Upwork profile's home page:
"Action required: To avoid additional account restrictions, you must complete your identity verification video call with Upwork. You can initiate this call by chatting with an agent here."
When I click on link attached to "here", I am getting redirected back to same page with same message. Instead of redirecting back to same page, I should be able to contact to Upwork Support but that's not the case.
I am getting other messages as well on other pages like on my profile view page:
"Financial transactions for Ravi Singh (XXXXXX) have been limited. Please check your email for additional information or contact customer support."
When I try to click "contact customer support" link, it behaves same and redirect back to home page with first message. I have no idea how could I contact to customer support in such situation. I feels like there is something wrong with Upwork, may be technical issue. Because in any case one should be able to contact support to have help or resolution.
Any help on this would be highly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you Avery for the response.
My client got the email from Upwork regarding same issue with subject "Upwork Help Center: Reaching out about your freelancer, Ravi Singh"
And some part of that email's message was:

But the problem is I am not able to contact Support, then how could I get my identity verified?
This is all detail I can provide right now.
As I have mentioned earlier, we'll have someone from the Support and/or the Marketplace Quality Team reach out to you so that this issue can be resolved.
Kindly please clear your cache and cookies and/or try to use an alternate browser to see if the issue continues to persist. If so, please let us know. Thank you.
I am still waiting for Upwork Support to contact me to help with the issue explained. Can you please let me know the estimated time for the resolution or at least any satisfactory response from Support? This would be helpful.
It would be great to get it resolved soon because I have stopped working on client's projects due to this issue. I mentioned this point to one of client and he further contacted Support. He got the following response from Uwork Support:

Now, again it is mentioned in the message that freelancer have to reach out to Support, I tried couple of more times to contact support but not able to make any contact yet.
Looking forward to positive response.
I see you have an open ticket about video verification and the team is assisting you. You can update them directly via that ticket. I'll also follow up with them and share the concern you shared here.
Sorry for the back and forth on this, Ahmed. But I wanted to double-check that, other than the support pages link that I sent earlier, the verification link also doesn't lead you to the actual verification page?
UPDATE: Hi Ahmed, the Customer Support Team will reach out to you directly to assist you further.
I'm experiencing the very same issues as Ahmed. The verification link does not lead to the actual verification page. I even tried clearing cookies and cache, different browser, I double-checked my e-mail for a verification request, and my profile settings no longer display a link to Verify Identity because I completed that step with my ID.
I'm willing to complete a video call but the links lead to nowhere.
Thank you for reaching out and I appreciate you trying to troubleshoot it yourself. One of our team members will contact you directly via email to help you with the verification. Let me know if you need anything else.
Am trying to log into Upwork support for identity verification and always redirected me to upwork home page like this.
Many time tryed clear cache/cookie also visit upwork link clear-cookie. Tryed for different browsers (version supported by upwork) in Incognito Mode and Default Mode ... and still have same issue.
Also messaging with Upwork Support Team member and have open ticket with "hold-on" status.
Please help me. I just want to work. Can I verify my identity by other way?
Thanks for reaching out to us. Please allow time for our team to carefully review all the information provided in order to assist you further with your issue.
Thank you for your patience.
Hi, I am having the same issue as everyone here. I need to verify my ID (via video) to get paid for a job I did, but keep getting redirected to job page. I am in Google Chrome on desktop (though also tried in safari from my iphone) and have also already tried clearing my cache (the default 4 week worth anyways). Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks! Katie
I apologise for the delay as I had to check this with the team. The Customer Support Team will reach out to you directly to assist you with your verification.
I have the same problem. When I try to click on video verification link, I'm redirected to my job feed. Can someone help me? I also tried clearing my cache, using another browser and another PC, but the problem still happening.
Well, but there is the problem, when I try to enter the link that you sent "support ticket", it opens but it automatically returns me to my homepage, I can not stay on the page.
I already sent my valid government-issued photo ID, just need to make the video call and I'm afraid I can not get it in time, because of this error in the site.
I'm facing the same issue. I can't verify my Upwork account and neither i can support page. Everytime i login to support page it redirects me to home page. I tried clearing cookies even install mozilla but still facing the same issue. Please help me to resolve this issue i've three(03) days to confirm my identity with video call verification.
I'm still unable to complete the video verification because when I've to login to support page it redirects me to home page. So please contact me as soon as possible because I have only 2 days then i think my account will put on hold as i have received email by upwork.
I'm sorry to hear that your issue persists. Could you please go to your Account settings - Identity verification tab and click on the ''Start Chat'' button in order to initiate the verification process.
Once you do our agent will guide you further through this process.
Yes i already did this process for ID verification and ID verified "ID added Successfully verified on 2019-06-21"
So when I click the "start chat" then the support page automatically redirected to my home page or "My Job Feed" page means Support page not opening for me. Kindly resolved my this issue as soon as possible.
