Angry ECFMG certification. 2 weeks<< ??

So I finally passed those exams and my credentials were verified long time ago. Have been waiting for certification for 15 days... Is that okay? Do we need to pay something to get that certificate?

You can contact ECFMG Certification Services:
By telephone: (215) 386-5900
By mail:
ECFMG/CVS Department
3624 Market Street, 4th Floor
Philadelphia, PA 19104-2685 USA

Unfortunately, the average turnaround time for the ECFMG Certificate is around 8 weeks but it could be more or less. They are in the middle of a very busy season so you may have to wait a while.

Default Certifcate

This is my problem as well. I passed Step 2 CS last Aug 12. I called ECFMG last week to ask why I am not yeT certified. They told me that it takes 10 working/business days from AUGUST 13 to be notified through e-mail about my certification. Hopefully, by the end of the day we all get e-mails.

Well, I don't know anything about this information MatchAResident gave you. The ECFMG says they will SEND you the certificate via FEDEX in 2 weeks. And they DO. Even in busy periods, like the end of August. As brain15 stated, FEDEX sends you a notification email exactly 2 weeks after qualifying for certification.

It takes 2 weeks to get the written confirmation, but how long does it take to get the online confirmation that shows up on oasis?

Less tha 24h after sending your certificate. For exemple, if they send it on Aug 27, it will be updated on Aug 28 (morning).
