- Go to the official website of HDFC Bank: https://www.hdfcbank.com.

For checking your application status, you will need the acknowledgement receipt, given to you during your application. This receipt will have the application reference number, which has to be entered on the ‘Track your Credit Card’ page along with your mobile number. This will give you the status of your credit card application.
Check Application Status via Application Form Number
You can also check your credit card application status by using the application form number. You have to enter the form number and your mobile number on the ‘Track your Credit Card’ page. This will display the status of your credit card application.
Check Application Status via Date of Birth
The third option available for checking the HDFC credit card status is by entering your date of birth along with your mobile number on the ‘Track your Credit Card’ page. The page will then show the status of your application. This is a very convenient method as it does not involve keeping track of any application number.
The various stages of the HDFC Bank credit card status are ‘In-process’, ‘Dispatched’, ‘Rejected’, ‘Disapproved’ or ‘No records found’. You will receive a message if your credit card has been dispatched for delivery. In the case of disapproval, rejection or no records found, you will have to contact HDFC Bank customer care for more details.

Check Application Status via HDFC Local Branch
You can also visit the nearest HDFC branch to know your HDFC credit card application status. The bank employee will ask for your application form number or application reference number to give you an update on the application status.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
When can I check my HDFC credit card application status?
HDFC Bank will send you an SMS, acknowledging your credit card application. This SMS will contain the application reference number required for checking the credit card status. After you receive this SMS, you can check the application status on the official website of HDFC.
My credit card application has been rejected, what could be the possible reasons?
If your application doesn’t meet the eligibility criteria set by HDFC Bank, then there are chances of your application for a credit card getting rejected. Generally, the criteria for approval include CIBIL score, credit card history, income earned, background check, etc. Poor credit history or lack of one can lead to rejection of your credit card.

HDFC allows you to check your application status through three modes; the application form number, reference number or date of birth. You can always use your date of birth and mobile number if you lose the other two information. Your mobile number is mandatory for checking your HDFC credit card status, regardless of whether you’re using the form number, reference number, or date of birth.

However, an SMS will be sent to you updating you about the status of the application.
