There is no set time for how quickly transfers happen. It really depends on bed space at the receiving facility. I've seen transfers happen within a week of approval, but others have taken months.

Every prison does things a little differently when a new inmate arrives. Most just transfer their old lists, but others make them fill out new ones.
