The actual Interpol part of it was just a couple days. The FBI results took ... i don't remember, several weeks or maybe even a couple months until I got it back.
If you aren't a US citizen, you won't have to do the mailing part, as far as I am aware.
Jennifer, if you are a US citizen, and didn't do the mailing to the FBI, they may well have changed a part of the process.
This is how it has worked for me , twice (my last 2 CEs).
I brought an envelope and Interpol addressed to the FBI in the USA.
Later I recieved a copy of the response from the FBI in an envelope.
