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?

You need to first create your profile. It is empty.
If you have moved and are resident in the USA now you have to provide your US tax info, obviously

This is the second time I'm making this request: my country is locked as Thailand, but I am a U.S. resident and created my account in the U.S. Could Upwork please change my country?
Given how many people are having this issue, perhaps Upwork should consider looking at the functionality here.

I apologize for the inconvenience this caused. Your Country was updated to the US, please update the rest of your profile information.

Despite the fact that I am in Zimbabwe, Zambia was the country automatically inserted into my form and I could not change it. Hence the country and city on my profile is wrong.

Your country is now updated, feel free to update the rest of your address as well. Thank you.

Hi I am hoping someone can help me with my profile. I have just joined but my profile address is incorrect. All details are fine except that it won't allow me to confirm that it is Ontario, Canada instead defaulting to Cork, Ireland.
The option to update is greyed out so hoping someone can fix this for me.
Thanks for the help!
