Hello everyone, I need an advice from you guys based on my wife case. Actually I filled I-130 form for my wife on August 2016, and it was approved on January 2017. I received message that my wife case has been sent to NVC. But I was surprised to receive the following message; 

 

 

Dear xxxxxx


The National Visa Center (NVC) received the immigrant visa petition filed by xxxxx  

xxxxx on behalf of xxxxx from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
However, your case is not currently eligible for further processing because there is an annual limit on the number
of immigrant visas that the Department of State can issue. For some visa categories, the wait could be many years.

This petition will be eligible for further processing when your priority date is earlier than the cut-off date for
your visa category. 

 

Visa Category...........................F2A - SPOUSES AND UNMARRIED CHILDREN OF PERMANENT
RES.

 

I need someone to help me analyse the above message.

Please can someone explain this to me and what does it mean bypriority date is earlier than the cut-off date for your visa category?

Sounds pretty much like it says, "Not currently eligible for further processing because there is an annual limit on the number of immigrant visas".

 

Also, you are an LPR, not a USC correct?  For LPRs it can take 2 years about(maybe more even) before bringing of a spouse or family sometimes, where as it is about a year for USCs.

Meaning when my priority date becomes current I'm gonna get an interview letter right? Because last year November 1 I had a letter stating that my case is complete and it's in queue awaiting for a visa number. My priority date is 31st July2015 .F2A category. Does it mean when my priority date becomes current I'm gonna get an interview date and when do you think my case would be current for an interview? Thanks
