I signed up for Upwork while I was travelling but didn't finish my profile. My country is set to Serbia but I now live in the US. Every time I try to access the account settings page to edit location it just redirects me to the "create profile" page. How am I meant to change my country before submitting my profile for review?

Your country should reflect the one you're physically located in and be able to verify it.
Would you like us to update your country to the Philippines?
Hi, I'm creating my profile and I'm unable to change the country. It is set currently to UK but I live in Palestine. I tried using the settings but the website redirects me to the create profile page.
Thank you for the help.
I am about to finish the registration form but I have mistakenly selected the UK as residence country and it looks like I can't change it because I am not allowed to select another country.
Before finishing my profile, I find that the country of my account is the default "US." Unfortunately, I currently live in China. But, I find it very sad that I can't finish the last step because I don't have a phone number in the US. You have set it as the MUST step before I'm allowed to change my country code like other members.
This is a complaint letter, as many people flow between different countries nowadays, and fixing one's account on a certain country is unreasonable for most of us, the global citizens. I hope you can seriously take my suggestions into consideration.
Finally, I hope to receive your reply via the email address: **Edited for Community Guidelines**
