Create an Apple Developer account
If you want to publish an app on the App Store, you must own an Apple Developer account. If you want to distribute an app within your own organization (in-house apps), you will need to join the Apple Developer Enterprise Program ($299/year).
It costs $99 per year. You can publish as many applications as you want.
⚠️When the dev is outside the US, it is not uncommon for the process to take up to two weeks to complete. Best to be patient, making sure that emails from Apple are not being spam filtered from your inbox.
