When an I-130 petition is filed a Priority Date (PD) is established. When the PD is current the beneficiary of the petition can file for their Green Card through adjustment of status (if in the US and eligible), or apply for an immigrant visa (it outside the US). It will take 12 to 18 years for the PD of a brother/sister of a U.S. Citizen to become current.
