The US-only jobs are available only for freelancers who are physically located in the US and can verify it. There are various reasons why a client would want to post a job with that requirement. 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 an easier way to get started on Upwork.
In trying to accept my first job offer, which I am very very excited about, I was asked to verify my ID. I submitted a picture of my state ID, but it was not validated and I got a message saying my account is on hold and I can't accept any proposals. I am not sure what to do. Please help! Thank you!
I'm geting this error: 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'm looking to be able to reupload my ID to get this fixed. Thanks!
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.
