Pending campaign similar to waiting for ad approval?

So I have never set my campaign to automatically run on a future date until recently where I want it to start running Wednesday. As of now, the status is "Campaign Pending". I am also aware that ads need to wait up to 3 business days in the approval process before they can start running. Do my ads need to wait until the campaign can start and then go through the ad approval process or are they automatically sent for approval as soon as the campaign is created with the ads uploaded?

Sorry if my question seems weird and unclear.

Hello Vincentch ! Welcome to the Community !


I have gone through this experience myself while creating ads before the client approves payment and starts running the campaigns.


I can say that Ad approval happens as soon as you submit the ads and it never took 3 days, it was from 1 hour to 12 hours to get approved.
