If you are a US citizen you can also petition her, about 5 years longer.
Nothing I say should in any way be construed as a breach of VJ TOS.
If you misread it that way, read again and do not put any spin on it.

Is she remains unmarried she will be category F1. Currently they are processing applications with a priority date of November 1994. So she is looking at about 18 years before she can obtain a visa.
My friend was petitioned by her US Citizen father in 1993. Her number came up just recently, unfortunately her father died before her number came up. Although everything wasn't lost, the death of her petitioner (actually his "affidavit of support for her) was lost and the only ones authorized to produce an affidavit of support are very close relatives i.e., mother or siblings. As it turned out, however, her only sibling could not produce the level of income that would support her family and her sister's. So the final result of the petition was it was dropped.
In your case your sister would be 67 years old by the time she's ready to emigrate to the US and would require you as her brother (assuming that your mother would have passed away by then)to assume the affidavit of support.
Something to think about!!!
