Where it says 75% or 90% of Visas Processed, it shows a time in days or months which relate to these examples:

  • 75% Processed 20 months = 75% of the visas in that month were finalised in 20 months or less. Visas processed in 3 or 4 months would be included in “under 20 months“.
  • 90% Processed 24 months = 90% of the visas in that month were finalised in 24 months or less. This leaves 10% that took over 24 months.

Therefore 75% were finalised in 0 to 20 months, 15% took between 20 and 24 months, and 10% took over 24 months.
