The tourist visa ceases either when it expires by itself or when the stay period is up and the visa holder remains in Australia.

A bridging visa A does not have travel rights.

And you got all this information for free from a registered migration agent.

$ 150 a minute ? Don't start giving them ideas...
Might have meant minimum.

The Law Council of Australia, the peak lobbying body for Australian lawyers, has taken direct aim at the migration agent profession with a shocking set of recommendations to the government that include banning migration agents from representing clients at the AAT, prohibiting migration agents from providing citizenship advice, increasing the minimum English score for new migration agents, and implementing a period of required supervised practice for new migration agents among other recommendations...

Note:

For a ripoff to take place there must be at least two parties - The ripper and the rippee.

We understand the bridging visa rules and when that comes into effect. The grey area is that the we arenít looking for the tourist visa to be extended beyond its expiry date we are looking for the 90 day rule to be possibly extended.
For what purpose? She can stay indefinitely until a decision is made on the partner visa.

I don't understand why you're trying to extend a stay period when she is already able to stay.

Because the tourist visa is still in effect not the bridging visa. Says it clearly in the bridging visa letter. This means she has to live by the tourist visa rules. That’s why she’s been traveling overseas every 90 days. The bridging visa says no travel allowed

You're misunderstanding then.

She does not need to go offshore. She can stay in Australia.

The tourist visa will cease once she stays the 90 day stay period and does not leave, and the BVA will take over. That is how the system is designed. It is NOT the visa expiration in 2019 like you believe. I've already cited the source of the definition that the expiry when she is ONSHORE is the stay period ending, which again can be seen in VEVO.

Literally all she has to do is not leave and she will be fine. She never had to leave once after the 820/801 application was made.

But don't believe me, everyone else that has said it, or the immigration website itself. That's your choice to continue spending money and having her leave, further stopping the bridging visa designed to allow her to stay in Australia from going into effect.

The tourist visa will cease if she remains in Australia once the 3 month stay period is up. Then the bridging visa A will come into effect. Once the partner visa application had been lodged there was no need for your partner to leave Australia again. Make sure she stays put.

It can be confusing, but we're trying to clarify it. You can do a search through this forum and see how others talk about the BVA going into effect when their stay period ended if you want assurance that's what happens.

Keep in mind though if you choose to continue having her leave every 90 days that June 2019 isn't when the BVA will go into effect necessarily either. If she enters on 31 May, the stay period is still 90 days. So as in the definition immigration gives, the visa actually won't expire until 31 August because she's onshore with a 90 stay period allowance. Only after that stay period ends will the BVA go into effect. So even if she enters on 31 May, because the stay period is allowed, the BVA wouldn't go into effect in June 2019 anyway.

Basically, she needs to stay beyond the 90 day stay period no matter what for the BVA to go into effect.
