Hello, I have recently moved to the UK. I have a biometric residence permit but I do not have a British passport.
When I tried to upload my BRP, the following text is displayed:
"It looks like you uploaded an unsupported type of ID.Please try again with an image of your state issued U.K. driving licence or British passport."
How could I overcome this and successfully get my ID verified?
Solved! Go to Solution.
It looks like you're trying to apply to UK-only job posts. In order to apply for these, you must verify your location. If you encounter any issues while trying to verify your location,please know that you can reach out to our support team by selecting Get Support at the bottom of the Help Center page.
If you'd prefer not to verify your location at this time, that's ok! Switch the feed you're looking at to My Feed and you can search and apply to job posts that are Worldwide.
I live in the UK and have a right to live here(through my Irish passport) but it says I can only upload a driving license or a british passport. I can supply a utility bill or bank statement to verify my location instead, or my Irish passport?
Hi Goran, I would also like to verify my location in the UK, but I don't hold a British passport or drivers licence. The pin on my profile shows where I'm based already, but am not able to apply for jobs for 'UK only'. Can I please get assistance with this? Thank you!
I just moved to the UK from Turkey. I'm trying to verify my location, however, the system asks for British Passport or driving licence. I could be a resident without having a British Passport or it is possible for me to not driving.
I'm resident in the UK and I can upload other documents (BRP, bank statement).
Can you please help me?
Similar to previous post, I want to get UK verification. I can show my BRP/bank statement/work permit as evidence. Would be grateful if you can help me.
I checked your account, and it looks like you have already completed the verification process and that the U.K only jobs are already showing on your account. You may log in and check. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

What if you live in a country with a residence permit and work visa, but don't have a drivers licence or passport? When I try to verify my eligibilty to work in the UK, those are the only forms of ID it accepts.

I have a similar issue, I have a Greek Passport but have been living in the UK for the last 5 years.
How can I verify my location without a British passport/driving licence.

Similar to previous post, I want to get UK verification. I moved to the UK months ago. I don't have any of the documents you're asking. I can show my bank statement/work permit as evidence. Would be grateful if you can help me.

Following previous posts, I also would like to get UK verification. I've been living in the uk for3 years but don,t have UK driving license or passport. I can show my bank statement or other documents as proof though. Please let me know.
I have seen at least a hundred posts in the Forum asking this same question.
Clearly there is a way for this to be resolved, because Upwork has worked with these freelancers to resolve the matter.
But purely out of curiosity... If you have been living in the UK for three years, can't you get a UK driver's license or UK-based non-driver government ID card?
