how long does it take to be pre-approved for an FHA loan manually?

We are looking to buy a house this year and are waiting on being pre-approved for an FHA loan. We have to be approved manually because my boyfriend has no credit but a good job history and non-conventional lines of credit (utility bills, etc.) and I have an okay credit score but have only been at my current job for 6 months. Has anyone had any experience with this, how long does it usually take? It’s been a week, I don’t want to contact any realtors until we are pre-approved.
