You can come back immediately. As of now, this is probably a limitation of the technology.
It's probably an issue having to do with the virtualized nature of the tech. If I had to guess, Nvidia allocates a certain amount of GPU/CPU power depending on the game (older games require significantly less power to run than newer titles), so it allows Nvidia to rebalance available resources depending on the current user load. Nvidia might be able to host 3 free accounts for every 1 paid account, so it allows Nvidia to balance free accounts to less powerful, lower priority servers and paid accounts to higher priority servers.
Working in a realm of IT, we have different tiers of storage, servers, etc. and if a server is not able to maintain the load, we can migrate it to another virtual server in a matter of minutes (or less).
Virtualization is a beautiful thing.
EDIT: I just did a test with Borderlands 3 using the free Geforce NOW. I played for the full hour (which was very enjoyable, I might add). At the end of it, it gives you a count down, and then terminates your session, so make sure you have a recent save so you can pick up where you left off.
After it kicked me from my session, I was able to immediately start a new session. Again, this is for the FREE account. If it lets the free account do this, there's no doubt that the paid account can rejoin immediately as well.
