    I don't think anyone can answer that question because it's like asking how long is a piece of string. Hopefully it will be done soon, just keep checking your journal is all i can advise.

    Hi @jojo7777. It can take up to a week to clear on their system but it's important to remember that budgeting advances are discretionary and there's no guarantee you'll be accepted for one. If you give them a call they should be able to tell you if an advance is available for you.
