How Much Time it Takes ?

It may take upto a week for your account to get reactivated. Meanwhile you should regularly check your mail as whenever your account gets reactivated facebook will send a confirmation email. When your account gets reactivated you will have access to all facebook features so make sure you don’t use them too often. One of the biggest reason why facebook account gets disabled is when you join tons of groups and then try to post in all of them. I suggest you not to join over 200 groups.

In case if your account doesn’t get activated then you might have done something wrong, so go back and try to appeal once again and this time try to submit other proofs which are listed above.
