Dear Sir or Madam,

The purpose of this letter is to express my dissatisfaction about the signup form. Actually, my country, Iran, does not exist in the list. At first, I compelled to select UAE to continue filling the form but when it reached to address and phone number field I stuck and I did not know what to do.

I appreciate your precious time to answer me.

Yours faithfully,
Morteza Rouhani

Morteza:

 

Sorry that you are disappointed, but this has nothing to do with Upwork. Upwork has no control over what your country does. Talk to your country and get them to make the necessary changes so that they are no longer on the restricted list. Then you may use Upwork.

Here are the details about why your country is not in the list of countries whose residents may use Upwork:

Hello again,

I appreciate your swift response. Obviously I can not change my
government's policy!!! and US as well. Do you have any suggestion for me to
enable me to use upwork? For example, can I use the address of an
acquaintance in another allowed country for me?

Best regards

No, that would get your profile deleted real quick.

Due to US sanctions people in Iran can not work on Upwork.

Yes, I understand, thanks for your time. In fact we are captives of policy.

Thank you
