2 days in total. At the interview they say it can take up to 7 days due to background checks they do after the interview

Yeah from the consulate. I'm not sure why yours hasn't been posted yet but I'm sure it will be soon!

You called the Consulate? (Aka call centre in Manila) for an update on where your passport is?

When mine is posted it should still be next day (I'm in Perth metro area so express post has it within the range of next day guaranteed).  You can also track parcels that are express posted online with their tracking number.

 

I'm sure it will be fine but I'm really hoping it's soon so I can be back with my wife before our anniversary in early December, just waiting on the passport so I can book a flight out as soon as I have it.
