Jaideep, much as you might choose to lose sleep over this, note that the Upwork profile verification team will not ask you to provide proof of where you're logging in from.
The documents they'll ask you of are in the link I shared above.

But they will see my Canadian IP when I log in from here.
Anyway, I'll write to them for further clarification.
There is no need to waste Upwork support's time and your time.
They'll simply copy and paste the existing knowledges base and serve that to you.
I want to ask for clarification on contradicting information on two of their own different pages and you tell me I shouldn't waste their time?
There is clearly a gap in consistency when they put in the line that says "You must choose the country you are logging in from" and you tell me I shouldn't clarify on that?
I've flagged your post for the attention of a mod.
An Upwork staff should circle through to you in a moment and provide you clarification on this thread.
It looks like a member of the Customer Support Team has clarified this for you. I would also like to add that if you are travelling and are away from your country of residence temporarily, you don’t need to update your location. If it does raise any flags on our end, the team will reach out to you directly. If however, you are going to be away for an extended period, such as moving some place, then you should make updates to your account location. Also, it's recommended that you check with a legal adviser if you need a certain type of visa or a work permit to be able to work on Upwork while travelling.
The agent told me that when it says your country should be set to the one
you're logging in from, they mean the time zone setting only.
Writing this here just incase anyone else ever has the same question.
