How long does it take for a profile to be approved?

It typically takes 24 hours to review your application and Upwork will notify you if your application is approved or declined.

Hi Tamara, 

I apologise for the delay. I have followed up with the team handling the account reviews so that they can proceed with reviewing your account registration.

I haven't gotten an email about whether or not I've been accepted on Upwork. I'm also not seeing the message "Your profile is under review" like the Upwork Help Center says I should. I'm not sure what I should do to find out if I'm accepted because I haven't gotten an email.

Hello, I try to register as a freelancer, i fill the form and at the end it looks like I have only the option to become a client. Can someone tells me where I do the mistake to end up there?

Hi Anita,


Just to confirm you have opened the correct profile.

When you`re ready you will need to submit it for a review by clicking on the Review Application button at the bottom of the page. If you`re being directed back to the same page please clear your cache and cookies or log in with another browser to submit your application. Thank you.

How would I know that my profile has been approved and I can start the work?
