The 75% figure does mean under 17 months processing time, some a lot less.The timeline of processing has been changed:
75% From 17 month to 16 month
90% still sat on 22 month
I think 75% means under 75% and 90% means over 90% for applicant .
Same here , the agent we used emailed the DHA asking for any updates, but we got nothing new. It is just a waiting game ( I just hate to be kept in limbo)I emailed and explained my situation because I married for more than four years and six years in relationship with two kids they going to school now but they replied you are still in normal timeframe .
Maybe most people that do get grants don't come back and tell people.It's very slow processing no grant at all in this forum since July last year.
Dept of Home Affairs Freedom of Information figures.I don't know where did you find this information or where this information come from but from what I know there is no grant from Brisbane YET.
