From start to finish, the shortest amount of time a Chunin will usually take is around 8 Hours.
This is derived from 4 standard Swiss rounds of 55 minutes each, plus a Top 8 round, a Top 4 round, and a Top 2 round of a slightly longer amount of time. Add in maybe 5 or so minutes between each round and it's around 8 hours.
Depending on the turn out though, it can be a bit longer. Though, if you don't make it into the Top 8, there's no need to stick around, as after that point, there are no more random prizes being handed out and everyone should have received their promos by then as well.
