Hi Krishna Veni,
In order to verify their location, a freelancer needs to provide a driver's license, ID card, Green Card or the United States passport. Unfortunately, it's not possible to verify the location without one of those documents but you can still have access to all the jobs in the marketplace that don't have U.S.-only requirement.
Ok, this shouldn't be that hard. I took a picture of my ID with my phone and uploaded it to the site and it was rejected. I've tried three different pictures. What's the deal?
Ok, my ID is now under review. It seems that the fifth time was the key! I submitted the same photo each time, and it finally accepted it. It now says that it will be verified in one business day, so we shall see. Fingers crossed!
I got a message saying that I have reached the maximum number of tries to upload my ID onto upwork. My brand new ID is in the mail and I've been trying to use my temporary ID. It did not accept it and now I've used up my attempts doing this. Please help.
