Answer
Hi,

For the month of September, 2010, which is the latest visa bulletin available at http://travel.state.gov/visa/bulletin/bulletin_5113.html the visa availability date for F2B category for Philippine nationals is August 01, 2002. Since your priority date is not yet current, the National Visa Center will not yet send you a letter with instructions to apply at the nearest U.S. Consulate at this time. We cannot predict future visa availability, but certainly the line has been moving faster than anticipated.
