Hi @Imagine M,


It generally completes either right away or within 24 hours. However, there are times when it can take 48 hours or even a little more. 


If the time is beyond this and you feel something is wrong, you can contact AdWords support who can access your account and discuss anything in detail. Just log in to AdWords and click on the gear icon in the upper right hand corner and call the phone number shown. You can also click on Help (same place) and pick another method to interact with support.


Kind Regards,
