It takes 2 working days which doesn't include weekends. 

You will receive a text notification to let you know when but expect Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

Your old SIM will turn off when the transfer starts and it will take a couple of hours for the number to transfer across.

Turn phone off and on to help it along.
