In my game it took aproximately 6 weeks and then BAM, 5 or maybe it was 6 of them arrived all at once. But I only had one Townie living in my Town when immigration felt dry as the desert.
From what I understand, as long as you have decorated rooms that are free from inhabitants, and you give your Townies some time to idle around, then the immigrants will come, but if your Townies are constantly busy, even just doing the everyday mundane chores like making food, or hauling apples then it could slow down the immigration rate.
