Hi,

Well if your timeline is up to date then this is probably your NOA2 with an approved petition ( this is where you smile :) ), the next step is they will forward it to the Visa processing center who will forward it onto the appropriate us consulate in your country. Some sort of packet 3 will then eventually be sent to you but the different countries are different so without knowing where the beneficiary is then I cant give you any more details but basically you will get 2 more notices in the mail and then a package/letter/email with instructions on what to do next. Once that is completed and sent back to them then you await to get an interview date....

Congrats!

Just to be extra clear, it means your petition for the I-129 has been approved. The USCIS believes you have demonstrated you are eligible to now apply for the fiance visa.

The USCIS will now forward your petition to the National Visa Center (NVC) where you will be given a new case number, and your petition becomes an application which is sent to a US consulate in you or your fiance's country.

There is still lots of paperwork to do, a medical to pass and an interview - only after these steps can you be sure whether your actual VISA application has been approved. This flow chart gives a pretty good outline of where you are in the process, though like others have said, the timing varies by country, so it's hard to say whether you'll have an interview in the next month or in the next 3 months. In any case, have a little celebration for making it through however long you've been waiting and get ready for the consular stage!
