I have similar problem. Last two years I could not work on Elance due to war in Ukraine. I visited Elance very, very rarely last few years. And recently I have discovered that my Elance profile was hidden...
Please, help me move all my Elance Job History to Upwork. It is extremely important for me! I am highly productive programmer and will pay nice fees to Upwork. 😉
Here is the link to my Elance job history: https://www.elance.com/s/vittron/jobhistory/?t=1
Unfortunately, it's not possible to migrate a profile from Elance to Upwork anymore. The process was completed several months ago. If you improve your Upwork profile by adding more information about your experience, skills, portfolio items and taking a few tests and start sending well-written proposals to jobs you are able to complete, I'm sure you'll be able to win new jobs on Upwork.
I too have the same problem. I have 38, 5/5 reviews on Elance and 5-digit earnings but had been away for couple of years. I had clicked on the migration link when i got the mail but due to some reason it did not migrate and i did not pursue the problem at that time.
It would be great if you can provide another small window of 2-weeks or so for people who have been left out before Elance finally closes down.
I have the same problem, i.e, was working full time on a company for the last 3 years. Now I no longer work there, it's time to become a freelancer again. I come back to find out that elance has moved to UpWork.
I got some excellent reviews from 2013, I NEED TO SOMEHOW SHOW THEM HERE.
If the automatic migration problem is closed, is there a way to bring them manually, and to let the users trust them?
Is there a way to contact the people for which we worked and make them sign that the reviews are real?
Not having the reviews means starting again, nobody is going to believe us!
I certainly don't want to start offering complex work for $50, if I already had one for $3,500 before...
Let's do something!

There is nothing that can be done. You can not move your elance accounts now. I did not bring over my account and I am doing just fine. Starting over wasn't hard at all. You just have to sell yourself and skills.
As we've already confirmed on this thread, the time frame for migrating accounts and information from Elance unfortunately has passed. One option you have is to take a screenshot of your profile and feedback history on Elance and include it in your Upwork profile Portfolio.
