Are you sure you actually submitted it for review?
I checked your account and I can see that you are yet to submit your profile for review. You need to click the review application button to make sure you did not miss any section of the profile creation process. Any portion that is highlighted in red needs to be filled in. Please review your application and update the missing fields to be able to submit your profile for review. In this case, please update the city field and resubmit your profile for review.
Once you submit your profile, it takes at least 24 to 48-hours for the process to complete and you will be notified via email about your account.
I checked and can confirm that your account was accepted. Welcome to Upwork!

"Re: How can I be sure if my Upwork account has been approved "
Can you bid on jobs?
The Hire button is there when I look at your profile from my client account so you probably have been approved. Unapproved freelancers tend to have a note that they can not be invited at that point.
Martina, whether the profile is public or private has not bearing on the approval status or vice versa
