Domain Transfer Duration

Good Day,


I would like to know how long it takes to transfer a domain to Godaddy. I have done the required process of getting Transaction Id, Security Code and Authorization Code.

But the transfer status still reads:

Transfer status:
Pending transfer-in.
Recommended action:
We're waiting for approval from the sending registrar, which can take up to 7 days.
How do I get approval from the registrar or do I have to wait 7 days? Is there a way to speed up this process?

That is correct from the time that you input the codes into the system it will be 5-7 days for it to complete. There is no way to expedite this process.
