How much time it takes to reload HDFC MultiCurrency Forex card?

I have the VISA Platinum ForexPlus Multi Currency Corporate Debit Card.

Today, on a Friday, I reloaded it with Qatari Riyals at 12:35 PM in the afternoon online using my debit card.

I received SMS & email notification of the amount being loaded at 6:13 PM in the evening.

So it took 5 hours 38 minutes.

Note: On our last trip to Switzerland, I had loaded Swiss Francs on the card only 1 day before my travel date & it was confirmed the same day via email, but I still could not withdraw Swiss Francs at any of the ATMs in Geneva airport when we landed there. Then after one more day I was able to withdraw my cash.

So to be on the safe side, my advice is to load foreign currency on the card atleast 3 or 4 working days prior to your travel date to be 100% sure that the card will be ready for use when you reach there.
