Yesterday at 6 pm I uploaded my beta build for review and it's status was waiting for review. This morning the status had changes to "In review" but now, 13h later it's still "In review". I will update this post if my app build had been approved.
EDIT: A day later in the morning it was approved. The total proces from uploading to being reviewed took 1 and a ...
Found that very frustrating too (I'm Russian as well). It based on your "preferred language" settings in browser. If you use Chrome, it can be found there chrome://settings/languages, move "English" upper. That's it.
Yes; there's a feature called Expedited app review precisely for these cases. From my personal experience, it takes usually about 24 hours to complete, but that's no guarantee.
From the linked page:
Expedited App Review
If you face extenuating circumstances, you can request the review of your app to be expedited. These circumstances include fixing a ...
Apple has implemented many changes in 2017 and 2018 time frame as the size of the store has grown. How you get support depends upon your relationship with Apple.
As a consumer, you would report and ask for support based on purchases you make. As a developer, you have a dedicated channel to report rights violations, fraud, and general concerns.
The App Store ...
I have heard of people using their paid tech support instances to expedite a review or determine why exactly it's being rejected if there is a code problem (such as Apple suspecting that a private API is being called when you are not calling any private API), but your best bet is probably to follow the normal process outlined here:
Minimum SDK ≠ minimum OS version.
You will have to compile your app with the SDK ≥ 12.1, but your Deployment Target can be lower than that. Apple wants to "force" you to prepare the UI for iPhone XS Max.
Here's more info about the SDK and Deployment Target on StackOverflow.
Simple explanation from Big Nerd Ranch:
SDK stands for “Software Development ...
This number may be a bit harder to find since Apple re-designed iTunes Connect on Mon, Feb 17th, 2014.
Multiple vendors: If you go into the monthly financial section and have multiple vendors a drop down will show up in the upper left with this number.
If you only have one vendor: Download a monthly financial report. The vendor id is the long number at ...
We just submitted our first Beta Review request and were approved in 50 minutes. The app is fairly large and complex. It appears that the Apple testing was very minimal.
Edit to add:
We just release a second version for external beta testing and it was instantly approved; no review required.
Yes - all your apps will be removed from their respective App Stores if your developer program membership expires.
If your Apple Developer Program membership expires, you will still have access to iTunes Connect. However, your apps will no longer be available for download on the App Store and you will not be able to submit new apps or updates.
The expedited app review process still takes time, I have seen app developers wait from a few hours to a few days and in really bad cases, weeks. I have also seen app developers try every possible way to speed up the process (finding the review team on Facebook, Linkdin, etc..)
In regards to your specific problem, that's the reason we created rollout.io an ...
With the new iTunesConnect, you don't actually have to download a financial report to get the Vendor ID.
Go to "Sales and Trends", then choose "Reports" from the drop-down menu in the top left.
On the next screen, there'll be a drop-down menu for "Vendor". Your name and ID will be shown there.
Only Company / Organization accounts can add additional developers to its team. As stated under the Enrollment Selection page, in the Individual account section:
Individual Development Only
You are the only one allowed access to program resources.
You can upload the app without worry.
If your app got rejected,it won't affect the future submissions and you'll keep the app name with yourself. Your app name won't be taken by any other person.
There is a feature in the itunes-connect to set the release date. Even if your app got approved, it won't be released to public.

I found the solution:
My Apps -> Click on on the app -> Pricing
Choose the Price Tier and dates and Save.
The status of the app immediately changes from Pending Contract to Ready for Sale.
Still not clear why I had to redo it.
There are four roles you can grant to the users for them to access all the data about specific apps:
App Manager: The App Managers can edit all aspects of the apps they have access to, and can add users to those apps. These users can be granted limited app access.
Developer: The Developer user has access to My Apps and Resources and Help. They can ...
The Apple discussions thread can i be an apple developer under 18? is exactly what your are looking for :
No. An adult would have to do that for you. To have a developer
account you must be 18 or older.
You can always start a corporation and the individual age restriction
is not relevant anymore.
To answer your questions:
When revoking a distribution certificate the below scenarios will occur for your users:

It does seem to be shorter than the full review process on average, and actually -- from personal experience -- it seems to be less than 24 hours (don't count on reviews over a weekend or holiday however). There is a tool for seeing how long a regular review might take Average App Store Review Times which is based on voluntarily submitted review time data. ...
I solved the issue by removing all Internal Testers. Then I disabled Testflight Beta Testing on the Pre-release page.
Then I enabled Pre-release, navigated to Internal Testers and selected users to invite - and that invite worked fine.
Requests for changed metadata happen all the time. If after a day or two of careful review of the iTunes Connect FAQ and guidelines, you still aren't comfortable you can always ask for more help.
In iTunes Connect - select contact us.
For the first option - App Review.
For the second option - App Store Review
For the third option - Ask/Address Review ...
It depends. If you have an Apple Developer account ($99 per year), you can create either a ad hoc distribution profile or use a development certificate. For more information on that, view here. Although it is called beta testing, it serves your purpose.
Now if you don't have an Apple Developer account, you can use jailbroken devices and Jailcoder. To use ...
In my experience, it depends on the version of your app as well. Generally, first version takes longer and if you have kept the features more or less same, the next version is quickly approved. We submitted first beta version of our app for review last month. It took one day for Apple to approve first beta release. From that point onwards, all subsequent ...
