NVC --> Moscow --> Letter... What is the timing?

Hi everyone, so my fiance and I are patiently waiting (totally kidding, it is miserable), for the letter to arrive at her flat from the US Consulate in Moscow. Does anyone know how long it usually takes? I have researched for hours and hours. I know the process, but it says it can take 'several weeks'... that can mean anything. And there are no places that mention timing for the letter to arrive. They just mention how long it takes from the NVC to the actual interview. Any advice would be very appreciated. Thank you!

Normally, all communication between the beneficiary and NVC (and/or the Moscow embassy) is electronic other than sending the beneficiary's passport with visa and accompanying documentation (sealed envelope, etc.) back after the interview. Ignore the text about the NVC contacting you in the CEAC status pop-up; it doesn't apply to K-1s.


Anastasia never got any print mail from the NVC or Moscow (and most consulates are the same). She did get an email from the embassy just before the calendar opened for her, but I'm not entire sure if that was a reply to her previous emails or standard (it had been a couple weeks since NVC ready at that point, though the first week or so was during Russian holidays).
