I read the guidelines for importing a vB forum but I have more questions.
We need to do the transition in one day and what would be the better approach?

To save time create a blank xF forum, format the style and install the add-ons in advance and then import the VB database
or
Create a blank xF forum, import the VB database and then install all the add-ons?

Thanks for suggestions

That is the optimum way as it minimizes downtime and work required after the import, and also allows you to take a backup before importing, should you need to restore and do it again.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Makes sense but was not sure if it could be done that way with the add-ons already installed
