Hi,

 

I am applying to work as a freelance translator in Upwork. I am a U.S. citizen living in Puerto Rico, but this is not on the list in the address section, despite it being a U.S. territory, which does not allow me to apply. What can I do to be able to apply?

Hi Winic,

Thanks for your message. Can I please confirm that you wish to change the country to Puerto Rico? Thanks!

Hi, thanks for replying.

That could work, the only issue is that Puerto Rico is not a country, technically speaking, and in most other websites it is included as a U.S. territory. But if the option is not available then I am fine with changing the country.

Are you quite sure you're not in France at the moment?

Hi Petra,

That is correct, I just finished a year abroad in France and I am going back home to Puerto Rico...and indeed, I guess if you were to classify Puerto Rico as an independent country (which it is not) I would not be able to apply to U.S. jobs, which is ultimately the country I pay taxes to...

Hi Winic,

Your country has been changed to Puerto Rico and you should be able to proceed with completing your profile. Thanks!

 What the OP was really on about was the fact that she can't apply to US only jobs when her country is set to Puerto Rico...

Is Miami, FL in Puerto Rico and 8 hours ahead of Colorado?

 She's in France at the moment (same timezone as myself) so whatever posessed them to change it to anywhere other than France is anyone's guess...
