I currently reside in the USA, where I have an active lease arrangement. However, my passport and citizenship is not from the USA. How can I change that so that I can upload a copy of my passport? What should I do? Please advise
If the person has a legal permit or a type of visa needed to work in the U.S. legally (shifted the wording a bit), they can register and work on Upwork as a freelancer. To be able to verify your location and submit proposals to those jobs with a U.S. (added periods to the U.S. to be consistent) location requirement, you will need either of the following - a driver's license, state I.D. card, U.S. passport, Green Card. Users located in the U.S. will need to complete their W-9 form in their Settings to access their earnings. We do suggest talking to a legal adviser about completing the W-9 form and the information/documents necessary for it. Unfortunately, we won't be able to advise about it legally.
I've tried uploading my ID so many times, and now I am told to contact support. Now what?
You've reached the maximum number of tries to upload your ID. To verify your identity so that you can access all jobs, please contact customer support.
I have been trying to upload my ID for verification, however I keep getting a message that is was not succesful.
The picture was taken correctly and meets all the requirements. Any advice on what to do?
