Trainers,

Ingress portal submissions have finally been reopened, roughly 15 minutes ago! It seems that Agents level 11 and up can submit portals worldwide, no mention of lower levels yet. The submission limit is 7 portals, down from original 10.

We have confirmed this in Croatia, by Rdash123, our local Ingress mastermind. A very exciting time is upon us – new portals, new Gyms, new Poké Stops and new nests. We’ll update this article as more info comes in.
