Hi Keval,


I checked your account and can see that you are yet to submit it for review. You are also yet to fill-in your City field in the address section of your account application. When you click on Review Application, all the things highlighted in red needs to be reviewed. Once you have updated your profile accordingly, you can submit it for the team’s review. Please know that profile reviews may take from 24-48 hours.

When I go to check my Membersip and Plan page of my account, I'm getting message that 'Your profile has not yet been approved'. Please check attached screenshot for the same.**Edited for Community Guidelines**

Hi Niharika,


At the moment you`re an exclusive member of your agency, this means that you can work only on projects under the agency.
If you would like to work as an independent freelancer as well the agency owner will need to change your status to Non-Exclusive member. Thank you.

I'm not sure what is happening, but I don't appear to be the first person with this specific issue.


My Upwork profile never received approval nor rejection. My profile page still says I am under review, but I subtmitted weeks ago. What's happening? 


I hope someone here can help.

Hi Haley, 

It looks like your account registration has already been approved. I would recommend that you read up on these freelancer resources and these tips for avoiding questionable jobs, for help getting started, and for more information about working safely through Upwork. 


I hope these help, and welcome to Upwork, Haley!

Hi Avery O,


My profile still says that I am awaiting approval, and I haven't received an approval email from Upwork. Perhaps something has gotten crossed in the system?
