Mailbox availability during Exchange migration to Exchange 2016

I am trying to find out how long the mailboxes are unavailable to during a move from Exchange 2010 to 2016. The only article I can find says that they will be unavailable for a short period towards the end of the move as the move is finalized.  I am getting ready to move all our mailboxes this weekend but it depends on how long each mailbox is unavailable for.

Thanks in advance

For users using the Outlook client, during a mailbox move from Exchange 2010, the mailbox is available up to the point the Outlook user is prompted to close Outlook.  Once the user closes Outlook and reopens it, the mailbox is immediately available.

For users that use OWA or ActiveSync, they should not notice any unavailability.

Thank you. I tested it out with one mailbox and it was perfect. The user was prompted to close outlook and that was it.
