    So I'm in Bermuda and I'm not sure how many portals are actually around on the island, there's plenty of historical places so I'm assuming there are at least 4 or 5 (and the island is so small it's only a 35 min bike ride from one end to the other). But I was going to suggest a couple of places that are close to me. So does anyone know how long it usually takes for Niantic to approve a new portal location?

    I believe it's 2-3 weeks if they accept it.

    4-6 weeks:

    New Portal Submissions - Ingress Help
    New Portal Submissions

    Help us fill out the play field by locating, photographing and submitting candidate Portals.

    Steps to submit a candidate Portal:

    Make sure your GPS on camera app is enabled (Open Camera > Settings > Store location > ON; you may also need to turn on Settings > Location services > Share Picture Location, if available).
    Snap a photo with your Android phone with the standard camera app
    Select the Share option for the photo
    Share to NIA Super Ops (with the Ingress logo)
    Enter a proposed title for the Portal and touch OK.
    This prepares an email to our Niantic Ops team with the photo and location of the object.
    Send the email.
    Our operations team will review the picture and object location and then add it to the game database if it meets our general criteria for Portals.

    General Portal criteria:

    Should be safe and accessible to the public
    Example types of objects:
    Unique architecture
    Outdoor murals
    Historic buildings
    Special outdoor buildings
    Unique local businesses

    Decisions on whether or not a Portal will be accepted will occur within 2-3 weeks. Expect a Portal to go live 2-3 weeks after it is accepted.
