Star 1-2 weeks..

you'll be notified that you are ecfmg certified within 1 week.
it will take 1-2 weeks for the actual certificate to reach your address.

It should be issued within 2-3 days after all three scores are in. (given credentials are verified). They send it by Fedex which you get it in 2 business days.

My credentials were verified on Aug 30 (OASIS was updated morning of Aug 31). ECFMG cert was issues right next day Aug 31 (thats the issue date but OASIS was updated on Sept 4 and received mail from Fedex same day that ECFMg has sent a mail). I received the certificate at my doorstep on Sept 6. (signature is required so be sure to be available).

good luck.

Hope it helps
