Tourist visa - 820 onshore application

Hi everyone, my partner and I have been together for 10 years and living together as a defacto for all that time. Last Xmas we visited Australia and we decided to move to Oz. My partners tourist visa expires in October 2016 and we plan on applying for the 820 partner visa onshore.

However his tourist visa only permits him to stay in Oz for 3 months at a time. If we lodged the partner visa within the 3 months onshore is he permitted to stay in Australia until the visa is processed?

He will be granted a BVA which kicks in at the end of the 3 months of the tourist visa. After the BVA kicks in he gets full work rights. The BVA has no travel rights so if he wants to travel he needs to apply for a BVB.

Does the current tourist visa have "No Further Stay" condition on it?

The current visa does not have a 8503 on it.

But as the visa expires in 5 months were we're now financially not ready to go and may need to wait until mid next year . We are thinking of going on holidays back to Oz at the end of the year anyway for Xmas again so he will need to apply for a tourist visa again. The current tourist visa was the eta online one with no 8503 clause.Since this would be his 2nd tourist visa would that have an 8503 clause on it or are they quite standard?

As far as I know, a no further stay condition cannot be applied to an ETA.

OK so if I am reading this correctly,I too can do this.
My husband and I have been married 13yrs with a child, I am an austrlian citizen and we are heading back to Tasmania on a visitor visa, one way plane ticket, and are remaining indef. As long as I apply for his 820 onshore before the 3 mnths is up, he will be ok and then will be able to work at the end of that 3 months????
Do you also no anything about the medical and background police check? Can my husband have a medical and get a police background check done here in USA before we head back and provide that with our application??????

That is mostly yes Chicken. But process is over 12 months often, so medical and police may need to be redone.
