Hi Ahmed,

I know you’re eager to get started working HITs and earning money.

As applications are reviewed based on business need we are unable to provide a specific time frame for when your application will be approved or denied.

We'll notify you as soon as the review process has been completed and let you know whether or not your account has been accepted.

In the meantime, you can browse the HITs available to see what you may have an interest in working.

We appreciate your patience while the review is taking place.

Thank you for your inquiry. Did I solve your problem?

I have no idea about Saudi Arabia - in the beginning you could turk from abroad. Then, they restricted it to just USA. I don't know the status of that now (though I'm sure someone will post who knows more than I :).
I do know that they have been really slow on opening up new accounts (in fact, some folks have been rejected flat-out) -

Please someone tell me
we have no way of knowing. Amazon does as amazon wants to -
I'm sure there is a process, but we don't know much about it. This board (and others like it) are really to share community, hits, and advice.

I know that my account was approved in about a week (perhaps less). Others have reported that they applied and waited and waited. Sometimes it seems that amazon is looking for new workers. Other times, they seem not to be - and things are just sort of stuck.

I hope they get back to you soon, though. I know it's hard to wait.

Unfortunately we don't have any way of knowing if your account would be approved in the future. Some are approved almost immediately, and others have reported finally getting an acceptance email after waiting a year. I'm sorry we can't be more help, it's just not information Amazon has shared with us on their approval process.

Many have. But they have had to work with Amazon - it often takes repeated emails and a bit of work.

But - sure, you can :).

The only hint, from what I know, is persistence. People who have lost their accounts and gotten them back, have spent quite a bit of time on it. They email pretty regularly and request information and contact from Amazon. It often works.
