How to add plugins to the WordPress repository?

I'm trying to add my plugin to the WordPress Repository so that users can just search for on the admin panel and then install.

I've filled the plugin form from with a title, description and I don`t know which URL I need to provide.

This URL can be from GITHUB with the files? Or something else?

Also, I need to know how long takes to the approval? Approximately.
