Estimated Time for Approval of YouTube Partner Program [Updated January 2018]

As found there are thousands of YouTube Channels who are waiting for the approval of their Partnership Application with YouTube. Most of them are thinking that when will YouTube accept/reject their application for YouTube Partner Program YPP?

As per research we have found that YouTube Channels who applied for the YouTube Partnership Program on/or after November 20, 2017 are facing this problem. While now YouTube Officials has also confirmed the same that they are having issue with accepting the YouTube Partnership Program Application in Processing and they will process them as soon as possible.

Applications for the YouTube Partner Program are taking longer than normal to process. We hope to be able to review these applications soon. Thank you for your patience in the meantime.

This is what everyone can see on their Monetization Tab.

Now the question is that Why YouTube is taking that much time in processing YouTube Partner Program Application?

If anyone of you has been a YouTube Partner for a long, they better know the answer for this question, but are not thinking of that. Every YouTube Partner knows that companies around the world spends billions of dollars on advertising their product in December, this can be seen on Analytics page that YouTube Partners earns the most in DECEMBER every year. As YouTube has introduced a new method of approval of Partners Application so that only quality channels could be approved and hence Advertisers could find better results, therefore YouTube is not processing the YouTube Partner Program in December 2017 so that those products could be advertised only on already running partners channels for providing better results to advertisers. I hope this question is answered that Why YouTube is taking too much time in processing application for YouTube Partner Program YPP?

Now when the reason is cleared everyone will have another question in mind that When will YouTube Process application of new YouTube Channels for YouTube Partner Program?

The answers is that after the CHRISTMAS  2017.
As soon as the huge amount spent by advertisers in December 2017 YouTube will start processing those new channels, because in my view YouTube doesn't want to give that huge amount to the new YouTube Channels in order to satisfy their advertisers as no doubt whole of the YouTube is running by those advertisers.

Note: As per latest information from YouTube applications will be reviewed by the end of January 2018. Only those channel will be reviewed which has 4000+ hours watch time in past 12 months and above 1000 subscribers.

We have tried our best to satisfy you with this article, but if you still have any suggestions, or questions you can ask that in the comments, we will try our best to provide you the answers as soon as possible.

Don't forget to share this information with your friends if they are facing the same problem as Officially YouTube will never reveal this to you.

About time Pakistan drama industry got a new reigning diva. Dethroning the likes of Mahira Khan, Sanam Baloch, Sajjal Ali was not an easy endeavor and Maya had a log way to come for achieving the feat.

How to Open/Unblock YouTube on Your Phone in Pakistan

For Pakistani users, the video streaming website was blocked on September 12, 2012, and almost three years later, they are still finding ways to access the blocked website. For internet users, their smartphones or handheld tablets have become their primary source of internet usage, and that is where the need for YouTube unblocking apps arises.

For some Android users, the YouTube app allows them to access YouTube without any proxies, or proxy bypassing apps. For others, the only way to access YouTube is through downloading and installing apps that make YouTube work. Here we look at how you can unblock YouTube on the three major mobile platforms – Android, iOS, and Windows.


TunnelBear, a free app, tricks websites into believing that you, the user, are located in a different country. In other words, you can access websites made exclusively for users in the UK, from the comfort of your phone, by routing your web traffic through this app and subsequently accessing them. For Pakistani users, this means that you can access YouTube from Pakistan.

TunnelBear gives you free 500 MB per month. If the usage is more than that, the user can get unlimited data for three months for $3.99, or $29.99 for 12 months.


Like the ZenMate app for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, the ZenMate app is the most convenient way to view YouTube videos in Pakistan. This VPN solution provides its users with the option of changing the location of their internet address, by channeling and rerouting their traffic to that of the country they have selected. This means faster anonymous browsing, and fast streaming of YouTube videos.

HotSpot Shield

HotSpot is by far the most used tool for accessing blocked websites in Pakistan. The app is free for computers. But the iOS and Android versions ask you to spend some money and buy the subscription. If your mobile network security while using possibly unguarded apps or websites concerns you, the seven-day Hotspot Shield trial is the best thing for you. Otherwise, you can subscribe to the $1 a month subscription plan, or the $12 yearly subscription plan, and enjoy surfing YouTube on your phone.


MetroTube is the most popular app for viewing YouTube on the Windows platform. It comes equipped with features like pre-loading the video and viewing it later, managing your YouTube account and viewing uploads, playlists, subscriptions, and favorites amongst many other things.

MetroTube comes at a price of $0.99.


A Windows-exclusive app that lets you secure your Windows Phone internet connection and unblock websites for free! It allows you to enjoy websites such as Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Pandora, and Hulu, from anywhere on earth! The VPN in Touch is the fastest and the most secure VPN for Windows Phone around.

Budget 2015-16 Increase 14% Internet Tax in Pakistan

Government of Pakistan has levied yet another round of tax on the nation, this time on the usage of Internet.
An advance federal tax of 14 percent has been declared on Internet users all over Pakistan, summing up to an extra amount of 14 percent to be paid on the internet services bill.
While Punjab has reversed its imposition of 19.5 % GST in the previous month, people in Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will still be paying a total tax tariff of 19.5 percent GST and 14 percent withholding tax.
However unlike GST, this withholding tax amount can be re-claimed by the customers who file for the return.
While Internet Service Providers will be rolling out notifications to inform their customers for the recent tax enforcement, telecom companies are still uncertain if the tax will be applied for deduction on mobile date usage.
According to ProPakistan, teleco brands already deduct 14 percent advance tax on loading of mobile cards. Nevertheless, the probability seems high that even mobile users across Pakistan will be accounted to the new tax enforcement.
What do you think of government’s new tax imposition on internet services?
