Hi Van, 

Looks like your account registration is still being reviewed. I'll go ahead and follow up with the team handling this so that they can proceed with reviewing your account. I apologise for the long wait.

I applied on Upwork last week, but still, haven't received any information regarding it. My profile is showing: 

If your profile is approved, it will become the public profile you’ll use to market your freelance business to clients (you can edit it after approval).


I wanted to know how long does it takes to accept or reject a profile?

Hi Diana,


I checked and your account has already been accepted and you have already sent few proposals to jobs. Please, make sure you check resources in this post to help you get started.

Its still showing that it will take 24 hours to be approved. I am not certain if i am approved or rejected but its been 3 days and the status that "you will be approved in 24 hours after which you can send proposals" has not gone yet and I am still not able to send any proposals.
