Thank you for your answer. I'm a seller in both Galaxy Apps and Google Play and I can confirm that none of this is required for non-U.S. resident citizens. Judging from its profile, @roycaruso is from Australia, so it shouldn't apply to him, either.
He opened the thread saying he had already applied for premium designer with no success. He applied again on Jun 26 with 100.000 syncs and, he's not premium yet.
It seems things do not work the way Facer says they would. I'm not sure the paperwork is to blame that's why I'm interested in knowing @roycaruso point of view.
