In brief: See below

If you do not have a donor, you are waiting to receive a kidney from a deceased donor. Factor like your blood group type and the level of antibodies in your blood among other factors determine your position on a waiting list for receiving kidney transplant .
This time is an 'median' of 3 years or longer.
