I have submitted my application a few days ago.
I heard it takes usually 24 hours to get an answer as to whether you've been approved or not.
I doubt your profile pic will fly unless you are a Smurf.
Fairly non-descript overview and worst of all - no portfolio!
Without a meaningful portfolio you might as well forget it considering you are trying to break into what is one of the most competitive and cut-throat categories on the platform.
It looks like you haven't submitted your profile for a review yet. Please, log into your account on Upwork.com, make sure all the fields are completed and then click Review Application at the bottom of the page.
Please add to your account real photo of yourself. We wish you a positive outcome with this, thank you.
I've checked and you don't need to submit your profile for review. However, you do need to enter your address on your Contact Info and Tax Information pages (click on your photo in the upper-right corner > Settings).
Your account has been approved. You can continue working on your profile to improve it, add more information about your own experience and skills and better describe what you are able to offer clients on Upwork.
I can confirm that your profile has already been accepted. Welcome to Upwork!

I have submitted my profile about a week back, stilll havent heard from upwork. Wrote to the upwork support team asking them about the same and they asked me to click on the review button and resubmit my profile. I filled in all the details, not sure what is the next step. I see no Submit button so I am assuming just filling in all the information and click the review profile button should be enough.
I apologise for the delay. I'll follow up your account with the team handling the profile reviews so that they can proceed with reviewing your account.
