Hi there, I just moved here in the US and trying to find job that says the US only. Upwork asking for an Identification like a green card. I don't have any identification yet except my employment permit as my Greencard application is still pending and upwork did not accept it.
Hi Charo Rio,
If the person has a legal permit or a type of visa needed to legally work in the U.S., they can register and work on Upwork as a freelancer. To be able to verify your location and submit proposals to those jobs with US location requirement, you will need either of the following - a driver’s license, state ID card, US passport, Green Card. People located in the U.S. will need to complete their W-9 form in their Settings in order to access their earnings. We do suggest talking to a legal adviser about completing W-9 form and the information/documents necessary for it. Unfortunately, we won't be able to legally advise about it.
Hello, I am fully authorized to work in the US with my F-1 OPT, but the verification insists me to give out the State ID/Driver's Licence/Green Card/Passport, which I have neither except my EAD card.
Upwork's automated bot is being finicky. Indiana recently changed how all the new driver Licenses look. No matter how many times I try to upload my lD, it keeps saying that I uploaded a form of ID that is not supported. Quite frankly, I should be speaking to Upworks technical team and not asking the entire Upwork community, but I suppose they insist on this communal Q&A workaround. Help would be appreciated.
A member of the Customer Support Team will reach out to you directly to assist you with your concern. I apologise if this experience has been an inconvenience.
I am trying to register at Upwork, but after I enter all my information, I receive this message: Next, you'll be asked to verify your phone number for added security. I entered my phone number, but the button "verify my phone number" doesn't seem to work in any browser. How could I verify my phone number?
