I just want to ask, how many hours or days do I need to wait before I can withdraw the approved payment that was credited to my account?
Make friends with your "My Reports" page.
It explains all details. You can also read this. In general released milestones become available after the 5 day security hold.
Once a client releases payment for a milestone, there is a 5-day security period before the funds are available for withdrawl.
Once the funds are available, you can withdraw them at any time. If you have more than $100 (or whatever higher amount you set) in your Upwork account and don't withdraw manually, the funds will be automatically transferred on your next scheduled payment date.
