Hi Brandon, 

I'm sorry to confirm that Kosovo is not yet listed on the countries we support on Upwork. Once this becomes available, we'll make sure to share it here in the Community.

Hi, 

 

I'm creating a new account in Upwork but my country Kosovo is not on the list of countries. What can be done?

Hi Jetmir,

Unfortunately at the moment there are no updates on having Kosovo listed on the list of countries that a user can select on Upwork. Thank you.

I am from Kosovo, which is a young country, we declared our independence in 17th of February 2008. And because we're a young country and because of other political reasons and issues, a lot of platforms don't list Kosovo as a country, one of which is Upwork, and I don't really blame them actually. So we're forced to choose Albania as a country. Albania is one of Kosovo's neighbors and it's a much older country (declared their independence in 28th of November 1912). Kosovo's 90% of population is Albanian so the people from Albania and Kosovo are the same people but as I said because of political problems we got separated into two countries. It would be really great if Upwork would list Kosovo as a country. Until now, everyone from Kosovo who uses Upwork cannot write their real address (except if they explain it on their description). Facebook, Google accounts, Yahoo etc. already have listed Kosovo as a country, but since we're a small country not all platforms heard about Kosovo. Here's a link of all the countries that recognized Kosovo as a legitimate country. **Edited for Community Guidelines**
Hope someone sees this and helps about this issue.

I believe it is less a matter of not recognizing Kosovo as a country and more an issue with Upworks payment methods not being available in some countries or other issues preventing upwork from oprating in certain countries , Kosovo being one of them.

In Payoneer I could choose Kosovo as a country. One of my instructors at a training center told me that Payoneer works for people from Kosovo. But did anyone ever have a problem with Payoneer?
