User group promotions are checked after a user logs in and they haven't been active for 30 minutes. Other than that, you have to wait for a cron entry to run.

Might be worth making a suggestion to the XenForo devs for this check to be done when a user registers. It may be an oversight as a user's last activity is set to the current time when they register.
Ok i see. So promotions applies for Secondary User Groups as i understood , and promotion not triggered on registration ? how do trigger promotion on registration ? or what cron responsible for it ?
