    Hi folks,

    Just would like to know if anybody here have (or had) the same
    situation like me.

    I'm non US resident so it means for apple that I have to fax a
    PDF document to the apple and only then they can make a payment (99 USD).
    I did this almost 1 month ago and still did not receive activation code to became iphone developer (test on device, access to app store etc).

    I have no problem with waiting but I just would like to know if I am the
    only one who is waiting month to get the activation code.

    I tried to send some emails but it seems that apple don't read them :)

    I understand they are busy...but just would like to know if is here any
    other non US resident who was waiting month or so...

    I still have no activation code.

    thanks

    ehm..in 5 minutes?
    I mean I'm not from the US. I'm from europe which means I can't pay directly
    from the site but I have to fax a PDF form to Apple.
    In my country is not iTunes store.

    Why would they accept registrations from other countries then? Where did you get to know this?

    We are a UK developer and we had to wait 10 months. Be patient. Things have been improving on their side. Their current response times are reasonable considering the fact they have been deluged with applications.

    Although Apple does take some time to approve/accept, it's good for the consumer. If someone ever does try to get malware into the store, then Apple has some verifiable information to help with tracking down the perpetrator.

    I would guess if you live in a near-lawless country, like Somalia, then you probably could never get accepted into the program.

    I should have been more clear here...

    Only if you live in US then you should either be US citizen or GC holder to get paid..!!!

    Well I'm not from Somalia. Just central europe. But we don't have iTunes store here. OK I'll be patient.

    Thanks for your comments.

    btw. 10 months waiting for UK developer sounds really long time...
