Depending on your structure on Google this could take hours or days to import into MSN. I did that for a relatively small account, it only had 4 campaigns and 12 ad groups and took about 3-4 hours to properly set up.
I think the current system is terribly inefficient at allowing numerous ad groups to be imported. You have to do an import for the keywords/urls/negative keywords, and another per each series of ad, per ORDER...so for one campaign with 20 orders/ad groups would require 40 uploads... plus the errors you will encounter during the upload... FUN!
MSN, please give us single sheet uploads for multiple campaigns!
My suggestion would be to call them and try and get in their "quick launch" program because they will do a onetime import for you which would save you some valuable time.

Thanks for that. Does anyone have a contact email address? I've just wasted 10 minutes trying to find a contact form for someone who already has an account (rather than a new sign up) but to no avail. I'm in the Netherlands and don't want to make an international call.

you can sign up for quick launch here: (https://advertising.msn.com/microsoft-adcenter/quicklaunch/signup) and you'll hear from them about 48 hours after they receive your form. as werty says they will get everything set up for you.

can I do so even though I already have an account which is partially complete with campaigns/orders etc?

Mac, you should be able to. As far as I know, It is a free service they offer to help advertisers get a "quick launch" and to help people import their accounts from google. I think they will give you up to 3 hours of "consulting" on it.

OK, many thanks to you all, I'll give it a go and see how I get on.

Have submitted my quick launch application with a request for help adding the extra orders/keywords to my existing account. I'll let you all know how things go.

I need to upload about 480 orders through 19 campaigns and they are telling me it cannot be done via bulk upload because my client is a self serve client.
Anyway around this?

Again here, quicklaunch would be your key. The only way to become a premium customer is through Microsoft contacting you when you hit a certain monthly spend (about 10k/month). So start a new account with quicklaunch and inform them of how much you spend on AdWords/Overture to get into a premium account status (Comes with API).
