There is not really a typical duration for these steps, except for two formal steps :
- The “cooling period” of the franchise contract where you will have to wait at least 2 weeks between receipt of the Franchise Disclosure Document and the signing of the contract.
- Visa-related delays, and the deadline for obtaining an appointment at the embassy for your Visa (from 2 at 6 weeks in general).
It mostly depends on how long you will need to start your new life in the United States. For some, it takes 3 months between first contact and arriving in the US with a Visa in hand. For others, it will take 2 or 3 years. In all cases we will adapt and advise you on the management of your project.
