Thanks for contacting us. As avimeso has put it, unfortunately we don't currently have a time frame for when this service will be available.
Sr. Producer Blaine Christine had this to say in response to a question regarding when transfers would become available:
We would advise regularly checking www.swtor.com for any updates on this service.
Thanks for your patience.
