Hi Din,


The review process takes 24 hours from the time you submitted your profile for review. Once the process is complete, you will receive an email and a notification to your Upwork account to update you about your approval status. 


Thank you for your patience.

Same question! I set up my account about a week ago and I've never received an email saying my application was either approved or declined.

It's been more than a week now and still getting a message "Your profile is under review

You should hear back within 24 hours. You will be able to submit proposals once your profile is approved".

How I can get my profile approved?

Thanks in advance!
