Once you have applied for a credit card, it is possible to track the status of your credit card application. You will be given a reference number upon submission of your credit card
application. It is usually sent to the phone number which you have provided on the form. For some banks, referencing the application number is enough. You can track the status of your credit card application online (most lenders have a provision for this on their website) by referencing the given number along with your phone number and/or date of birth.
