What Was Your Police Check Processing time for K-1

Hi all, So my Australian Fiance had her K-1 Visa interview today at the Sydney Consulate and all went well except...

They said she had the wrong type of police check.  Hers was a nationally coordinated criminal check or something like that.  


Anyway, apparently all else was good, and the kept her passport and they said she just needs to post the correct check when she gets it and they will send her passport back if/when its approved.

She had bought a plane ticket to come out here to the USA May 13th and according the the Australian government site it says up to 20 working days to get the check.  Then there's the time to post it to the consulate and back.


I feel confident it will all work out, but i would just like to know if anyone here did a recent police check and how long it took them to get theirs.  She has no history, has only used one name, and only lived in Australia so i feel it should be easy. 


Also, i want to make sure that this is the correct site





Edit:  I'm looking through the online application right now.  For "Purpose of Check" its supply to department of immigration and border protection and not supply to a country other than australia, correct?

Select a code 33 police check. I can't remember what it's called other than its code, but it might technically be the same one that's used for Australian immigration. Also, yes that is the correct website. 


I requested mine in January and it took 1 week to receive it in the mail.
