Try: This Link

What I did to get this information:

1. Click on Immigration Timelines on the top of the screen.

2. Click on K-1 Visas [ Advanced View ].

3. From the drop down at the bottom, select Costa Rica.

4. Click Find.

5. Find the column marked Interview.

6. Click the downward arrow to sort by most recent interview date.

Look to the right for the column that says I-129F NOA2 to Interview.

This should give you an idea of the wait time for your consulate.

now that i'm thinking some consulates are back up with scheduling an interview for example in Montreal, Canada i think the current wait is about 90 months after case completion while for Jamaica it is about 30 days.

Yes, Montreal is one of the slowest and busiest consulates in the world. The average wait time between NOA2 and interview is 3-4 months. Almost as long as the wait for the NOA2 itself. :wacko:

Montreal is backlogged and always is.

Right now, the earliest available interview in Montreal is the first week of June.

So yes, it looks to be a three-four month wait.
