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?

Can you please help me to change my location from Dubai, UAE to Philippines as I couldn't change it. I created my Upwork account when I was in Dubai and now, I am in the Philippines already.
You should be able to change your location now by going to Settings > Contact info and clicking the pencil icon on the Location section. If you need any further assistance please let us know!
Your Country should reflect the one you're physically located in and can verify it. Would you like us to update your country to Russia?
I can confirm that the Country in your location info has been changed. If you want it to reflect your current permanent address you must edit the other details by going to Settings>Contact info and click on the "pencil" beside the location information.
As a reminder, your profile must represent you as an individual and all the information in your profile needs to be accurate, truthful, and verifiable.
Dear Moderator Valeria,
I am from Bangladesh. First time I was living in Dhaka city (one of city of Bangladesh) when I created my profile. Now I am living another city of Bangladesh.
My question, Do I need to change my previous address/city/postal code etc? Should I add new present living address?
Advance thanks for your help.
Hi Md. Shaiful,
Please know that for tax purposes, you must use your real, permanent address. You can find more information in this help article. If however, you are going to be away for an extended period, such as moving someplace, then you should make updates to your account location. To update your location once you move, simply go to Settings > Contact Info and update the Location section of the page.
Please change my location from United States to Vietnam. When I change it in one place it does not change in the other. I live in both countries equally but my phone number is Vietnamese and I can't change the country code from +1 for verification. Why is it so difficult to make changes? Not a good way to start.
Could you please assist me with two problems that im having?
Your country has been changed and the agency isn't showing on your profile anymore. Let us know if you have any further questions.
I've logged in to change my location and it won't let me; instead displaying a red circle. Also, when I start typing my current address in, it tells me no results were found! I am not in the United States; I am in Egypt. Please advise.
As the title says, I'm unable to change my country from United States to Egypt. I'm still currently creating my profile and the only page available is that page and it won't allow me to change my address, is there anything I can do about this?
