Can someone tell me how much time does it usually take for upwork to transfer the amount to bank? It has already been 2 days and the amount has not been transfered yet.
Looking forward to your experiences and suggestions.
PS: It's a Japanese bank.
Once you submit a request to transfer your earnings to a bank account, there's a five day security period before Upwork actually initiates the transfer. Once that period ends, the funds will be transferred to your bank account. Availability then depends on your specific bank and their policies/procedures, but can take up to four days.
More information about the security period can be found here:

This is not correct. The security period comes before any request to withdraw any earnings can be even made.
Hi Abdul Mannan,
Direct to local bank transfers typically take between 2 to 5 business days. If the withdrawal still hasn't reflected on your local bank on the 8th-business day, you may reach out to us, or the Customer Support Team directly so that they can issue a trace for you.
You may refer to this help article for more information on Direct to Local Bank Fees & Timings.
