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.
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.

I am trying to verify my Govt. ID card issued by govt of INDIA - Aadhar Card. It's a widely accepted govt photo id card it has my clear photo and other required info.
I have selected the option of - 'Govt issued id'. After uploading it always says -'It'll take 1-3 business days'
But after some days, I need to upload them again and the issue still persists.
I have created support tickets, but they automatically show 'solved' after some time, but I still don't have my issue resolved. I received an email that I need to get verified within this month and I really don't know what to do.
Please can someone answer how they got their ID verified when they were in similar situation.

is there any way I can retake a photo that I took for visual verification? The process was way to fast and the picture got immediately sent. Anyways, I think I didn't take the photo as upwork is requesting so if there is any way to retake it, I would like to know.

I can see that your verification is already in progress. If there's a need to retake the photo, the relevant team will contact you and let you know.

I have resubmitted my ID for verification but only have 24 hours left for approval when the last time I got a reply 5 days later.
Can someone please take a look at my account and attached photo of my passport to verify my account, or at the very least extend the deadline I have for ID verification approval.
happy to get on a quick call with someone and have this taken care off asap.
Thanks in advance!

I've been trying to speak with an agent for identity verification. When I click 'speak with an agent', it won't load. I have a screenshot of where it stays stuck.

Hi All,. I got an email that my upwork account has been restricted and that I have to complete an identity verification. I have only NIN/NIMC CARD which is an acceptable means of identification in everywhere even in banks and I have also used it for verification on Amazon. I don't understand why upwork keeps rejecting it . It is the only means of identification I have now .
And most painful part is that I have lost clients that want start direct contract with me and other ones I have in my account I couldn't complete because of this hold on my account. Please they should me verify this with our Nigerian national ID card .
Waiting for your favourable response

I passed visual and location verification, but I can not pass ID document verification. I have sent multiple pictures of my driver license and everytime, within 5 minutes it says I haven't submitted an ID document. I do not get any type of notification that it failed or passed. It just asks to verify again.

You may be resubmitted too quickly and Upwork's system has been frequently slow processing this month. Wait at least a few hours or even overnight so the system can catch up. Have a great day!

I've uploaded three different (not blurry) photos of my DL and the system wasn't able to confirm my identity.

I uploaded my ID today for verification, but it's taking too long. I'm worried, because I have a contract going on, and my ID should be verified before the 2nd of February so my account won't be blocked. Will you please help me?
