Credit card companies have 30 days to respond to your application but generally they do it around 10 – 15 days.

After you applied for a credit card you should receive a letter with the status of your credit card application. The time of approval depends on credit card issuer and usually it takes around five to seven business days.

This approval letter informs you whether you are approved or not. If approved, a credit card issuer tells you the estimated time it will take for your credit card to arrive. Also, in case of possible questions on you approval it provides you with a telephone number. If your application has been rejected, the letter should state the reason you were rejected.

If you can’t wait, a customer service department of your credit card issuer is always at your disposal.
