Hi Sarah, 


I wanted to confirm if you have the proper work documents to be able to work on Upwork as a freelancer? It would be best to check with a legal authority if you can use your current visa to work as a freelancer in the U.S. If everything's in order, let me know so that I can check this for you.

Hi All,

 

I recently moved to London from San Francisco and am doing some freelance work. I want to be able to find work in the UK and in the US, but I can't seem to adjust my search settings. Can anyone help with this?

 

Thanks!

Natalia

Hi Natalia,

 

The US-only setting isn't referring to the freelancer's country of origin. It allows clients to specify that they are looking for freelancers who are physically located in the U.S. at the moment. There may be various reasons why a client may use that option. Their projects may require localized knowledge, the possibility of on-site coordination, specific compliance needs or other factors that make working with someone within their country a preferable way for them.

 

Thank you.

Hi There!

Thanks so much. My problem isn't solved, though. I would like to see jobs
in the US and the UK. How do I change those settings in my profile? Or how
do I change those settings when looking for jobs?

 When I try to upload my ID for verification, it shows the wrong last name. This last name was from a previous marriage. Everything else is under correct name.

I am a permanent resident of US. I am originally an Indian who got married to a US Citizen 5 years back and have been settled here in Durham, North Carolina with my husband and child since the last 5 years. While here, I have worked in 4 different companies on contract jobs. My last contract job lasted for 2.5 years in Lenovo - Morrisville, North Carolina. My Green Card expired on 9/18/2016. And I received an I-751 Green Card Extension Notice from the Immigration office on 7/18/2017, extending my Green Card by another year. When I called them up, they mentioned that the green card process is currently on backlog since the year 2016 and that my Green Card status is indefinitely extended till I get an official Green Card or Citizenship, as I am married to a US Citizen and have a 3 year old US Citizen child with him. They mentioned that at present my i751 Notice should be used as a form of Green Card identification and that in the future, I can always get more letters issued from the immigration office, whenever I need one to prove my Green Card status. Given this situation, how do I verify my US-based location to get US-based projects on Upwork.com? Please advise.
