      Basically, it means that you've been approved to continue processing. Your file will now go to the NVC (National Visa Center) where it will wait until a visa number becomes available to you.

        If you are the spouse or minor children of a US
        citizen, a visa number is automatically available for you.

        If not, there's a wait time on your visa
        process depends on what category and your country
        of origin.

          It means your sister proved that you are her sibling and that, as USC, she can petition for you. As said, that's the first part of the process.
          How much longer it will take depends on when she filed the petition and from where you are (PD becomes current for your region = visa number available).

                The concept is more important for those who are in the categories that have limited number of visas available per year. Let's say 23000. And your application is 35098. So, there is no visa for you this year (all used up by the ones in front of you). Next year you are 12098 in the line so "immigrant visa number" is available, and the process may continue.
                "Immigrant visa number" goes by the priority date (petition receipt date) and when the date becomes "current" in Visa Bulletin, it means "visa number is available".

There will be some forms to fill out and fees to pay. After that is completed and your imm. visa number is available, you may file for adjustment of status if legaly in the USA or the file will be forwarded to the consulate in your home country.

                      How long it takes? 10 - 25 years from initial filling of I-130, depending from where you are.

                          It means that an immigrant visa number in that category is available to those who were petitioned before the date shown:

                          All other countries: petition filed by 22JUL97
                          From China 15DEC96
                          From India 22NOV96
                          From Mexico 01DEC94
