Have instituted a new profile five days ago, and there appears to be a measure of stalling as to when said profile will be "approved". Looks like an attempt to keep myself from starting work as a freelancer.
And, the profile photo is good enough.

I'm a tad confused on the profile approval. I've had mates who have registered their profiles and instantly after clicking "Submit Application", they've gotten the screen where they can pick their membership tier. I've just made an account and it's redirected me to the homepage and said that my profile is under review.
Does this spell out a likely rejection?
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.
We wish you a positive outcome with this.
