How long does it take to transfer a snapshot to another region?

I started the transfer so I can spin up another box. I just see the spinner spinning with no idea how long it will actually take. Any idea?

16 hours later still waiting for the transfer of 4.5 GB snapshot.

trying to move snapshot from one account to another team account in same datacenter. Have had this message showing for the last hour “Once this snapshot transfer has been approved by , you will no longer have access to it.”

Is there a human intervention needed here? If so why? Be good to have an estimate how long a 7G copy will take. I figured no more than 30 mins,

Strange delay.

Five hours has already passed but still transfer from one account to another account in the same datacenter is not complete. Is it normal?
