Identity (ID) Verification

Hello, I'm sat here losing my mind actually.

 

So I had issues with my Payoneer card and my account was disabled. But I did not remove it from my Upwork. Got a message 8 days ago from Upwork that I needed to reverify. I sent my digital NATIONAL ID on my phone to verify, it was rejected three times even though I explained several times. Used Friday and Monday to process a new one at the local government building in my city and got the official national identity slip I used to verify my account in the first place. It just got rejected again. WAS told it's a photocopy that a colored one is needed. On my life I have never seen a colored version of the official national identity slip in my country. Only colored thing I know we have is the identity card itself and that takes  months to process. HELP 

 

 

How will I get color when that's the official thing here and I actually also used it to register on Every single platform I've ever needed to reg my national identity on?

 

 

Dying...

 

 

Edit: The slip is issued by the NATIONAL IDENTITY MANAGEMENT COMMISSION (NIMC), Nigeria.

Hi Olatunde,

 

If you are eligible or required to receive an “Identity Verified” badge, you can complete the two stages by going to Identity Verification in your Settings.

 

You may be asked to complete a visual verification and provide a valid government-issued ID. Acceptable documents include passport, national ID card (NIC/CNIC), driver's license, NBI Clearance (Philippines only), tax ID, voter ID, postal ID, or any other valid government-issued photo ID that meets these criteria.

 

Please note that your profile must represent you as an individual and that all the information in your profile, including your profile photo, needs to be accurate, truthful, and verifiable. We understand you may have provided a name and/or picture that you would like to update now. If that’s the case, and you’re being asked to verify your identity now, please proceed with submitting your ID and completing your Visual Verification anyways. If there is any issue or mismatch, our team will reach out to you directly to assist you.

 

Note that we occasionally ask users to re-verify because periodic checks ensure their accounts continue to reflect accurate information. Our goal is to make this process as seamless as possible and we thank you for your contribution to keeping Upwork a professional and safe community.

 

If you don't see a way to verify, that may be because you're not eligible yet. Please know that verification cannot be requested, but is slowly being rolled out to all talent. If the team finds the need to verify your account, you will be notified through an email, or through a notification in your account.

Hello there, hope you are well. I have one question and I hope that someone will ease my troubles. I received an email that I need to confirm my identity again. That's what I did when I first registered. The first step is to send a picture of the ID document, which I did this morning. Now I'm waiting for it to be checked, but as step 3, it says that the visual identification has been done, and at the moment I haven't even gotten to that part. That's not the only thing that confuses me. I have been living in Serbia for 4 years, but I am a citizen of Bosnia and Herzegovina, which means that I have sent a photo of my passport of Bosnia and Herzegovina. I hope it won't be a problem, because so far I haven't had any problems working on this platform. I look forward to any response and wish everyone a pleasant rest of the day.

Hi Sabina,

Greetings sir. I am writing in the hope that you will finally help me
resolve my location verification situation. I apologize if this post will
be a little long, but I simply need someone to listen to me and help me.
When registering, I sent my passport. I am a citizen of Bosnia and
Herzegovina (Sarajevo), but I have been living in Republic Serbia for
almost 4 years. I have been working on the Upwork platform for almost 2
years. I live here because I got married in Serbia, more precisely in
Mladenovac, which is one of the municipalities in Belgrade. Yesterday I
uploaded my document confirming my address in the Republic of Serbia. I
received that document at the police station, with a seal, and I sent the
scanned document in PDF format. Guess what, I WAS REJECTED. I want to know,
if I need to submit an official state document, how can it be rejected? I
am not a fraudster and I do everything honestly and in good faith. When I
first registered on the site, I could have put the address of the country
that is on my passport, but I didn't do that BECAUSE I DON'T LIVE THERE
ANYMORE, but in Serbia. I work from here and that's why I have the address
where I have been physically for almost 4 years. If you need my marriage
certificate, if you need information about my husband, who is a citizen of
Serbia, because the reason for my stay is marriage, I can send you
everything, but just TELL ME PLEASE! Since I come from Bosnia and
Herzegovina, which together with Serbia used to form Yugoslavia, I DO NOT
NEED A VISA, because our countries have bilateral agreements. I hope that
it is in our mutual interest to continue our cooperation, which is more
than excellent. If nothing else, I hope that you have someone from Serbia
in your team, who is a moderator, member of the customer support or an
administrator, with whom you could talk, and who would explain everything
to you in more detail and confirm everything that I have written so far.

Warm regards,

Sabina Petrovic.

Hi Annie Jane, 

 

I'm kinda exhausted as I have already provided my NBI clearance but still no emails were sent regarding confirmation of my identity. It's been a month that I've not received a confirmation. I cannot opt to use selfie verification as no information is available in my profile. Please assist.

Hi Christine,

 

I checked and it looks like you were able to complete the verification that was requested by the team. Please note that this verification request was not related to the Identity Verification Badge. 

 

~Andrea

Alright, then how would I be able to have the verification badge? The only one that's missing is visual verification and it doesn't have the option in my profile. Please respond. Thanks!

Please know that verification cannot be requested, but is slowly being rolled out to users of Upwork.

Hi there.

 

I'm looking for help regarding the verification process. On March 29th, I received a notification from Upwork telling me to verify my identity, giving me a maximum date of April 5th to verify. I completed the process the same day I received the notification, and it has been almost a week with no change in the status. May I request for help with my case?

Hi Carlos,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I followed up with the team handling your case and they will review your verification as soon as possible.

Hi Nikola,
I have the similar issue. I have uploaded ID and it was rejected. I read the requirements for ID verification, and the only thing which is missing on the ID is sdrees, since my ID has chip installed and the data about adress is on that chip. I don't know if this is the reason why my ID isn't validated, becouse I read that for passport the adress isn't mandatory.

Hi Djuro,

 

Thank you for your message. I checked with the relevant team and they have confirmed that your document was rejected due to a name mismatch. Please note that your registered name on Upwork must match your ID documents.

 

Thank you,

Pradeep

Upwork

Thank you Pradeep,
I have updated the name but my name starts with letter "Đ" and it is missed from my name contact info in the profile settings from some reason.
It seems that system doesn't accept this letter. 

Thanks for the complete explanation
