What does it mean if the status now changed to post decision activity?

Asked almost 2 years ago - 11413

I am applying for I-130 for my spouse 20 months before and I checked to USCIS websites on Monday I got confirmation that the status now changed to post decision activity and they have mailed us but we still haven't received it. Can you please advise me what’s the meaning of this? it said that I am approved. Understand that learned from everyone here that the next step is will go to NVC then interview? and when my spouse face the interview approx (time)? Thank you all for your kind advise?

    Answered . It appears that your I-130 petition is approved and now you will get paperwork from NVC regarding further instruction. How long will it depends upon when the visa becomes available . You can check the visa availability date from the Visa Bulletein at U.S. State Dept, website, under category F2, Family based category. The I-130 petition priority date can be found on the receipt notice you received when you sent initial petition for filing. it will also be mentioned on the approval notice, which you will be getting very soon.
