In brief: Depends...

The answer depends.
... If you are talking about symptoms of acute HIV, these may occur within 2 to 4 weeks of infection and include fever, rash, sore throat, headaches. Not everyone gets the symptoms of acute hiv. If you are talking about symptoms of HIV associated with more advanced disease, then usually this may take a few years before seeing symptoms like weight loss, fevers, night sweats.
