Are you wondering if you can move a new package just installed? If that is the case I would wait until you have open and capped brood. That way they have a reason to stay if they don't like being moved around.

If you are asking when a split can be moved back to its original location, that's two weeks.

I can't think of any other circumstances when it would matter. You could move the next day if you would like.

Another factor to consider is how far the move is. If a short distance, better to move them right away before they become totally indoctrinated to the location. Long distance? SEE above post!

I am moving in about a month and I am getting a nuc colony in two weeks. The move will be about 10 miles.
