Nintendo Switch access


I’ve requested access on the Nintendo Developer portal several days ago but have not yet received access. I was under the impression that access had to be requested by email and I would then gain access to the GitHub branch, but after reading posts on here it seems I may have needed an account on instead, which I have only just created.

Do I need to request access again on the Nintendo Developer portal, or should I still receive access soon? Is the email still relevant?

It would be great if the instructions on the Nintendo portal included expected timelines as currently it isn’t clear if you will gain access immediately, or will need to wait days or weeks.
