I also applied for a tourist visa but was granted 3 mos entry. My visa will expire on Nov 30. Me and my partner (pinoy aussie citizen) plans to submit a partner visa but still gathering funds for the visa quite expensive like gregusse we also didn't have funds ready yet. Maybe we could lodge next week but I am now worried if I can still make it will I be given a BVA if we lodge it next week? Does someone here same as in my case?
As long as you apply for the Partner visa BEFORE your 3 month stay period is up, you'll receive a BVA that will take effect once your 3 month stay is up. So yes, if you lodge next week, you should be fine.

Yes, we did supply Stat Decs for both my husband and myself when we applied for the 820 visa. We did go to the JP to have it witnessed. Best of luck! Just make sure you apply/pay before your current visa stay expires.

Most people will get the BVA notification almost immediately after applying for the 820, and it will come into operation when the current visa expires.
eg:
We applied for the 820 on 14/5/16
The BVA grant notice was dated 14/5/16, saying it has been granted, and will come into effect when the current visa at that time expires.

Some people on one year visitor visas get multiple three month stays, and the BVA kicks in at the end of the current 3 month stay.

Some people though, get a full 12 month stay, and the BVA kicks in when that visa ends. I assume you can leave Australia, to force it to end early, and come back on the BVA. We did that, going to Vanuatu, from our 12 month stay Visitor visa, to activate the PMV. It avoided having to do the CFO in the Philippines.

In your situation, I would suggest getting the 820 application is as soon as possible. Before the last few days of your 600.

Oh, is that possible? So let's say if my BVA kicks in Dec 1 until when does it expire? Do I need to re-apply BVA again so it will not expire? I only know that BVA is only temporary but I am not aware of how long. How do I maintain the BVA as they say the PV is 2 years waiting period.

I am sorry I was so confused I am worried as we cannot afford to go home as my three kids have been already granted citizenship by descent and we plan to let them study here by January. And If I did not make it the kids will have to go back with me then another expenses for travel etc

That would depend on the multiple entry status.

They cannot come back on a BVA - they would need to apply for a BVB before they left. Your situation was different - you went offshore to enable the grant of the substantive visa you had applied for.

A BVA has no return travel rights.
If an applicant departs Australia on a BVA s/he will need to obtain another visa to return. Exceptions to this are SOME cruises, where the applicant is deemed not to have left Australia. This is a problem for some applicants who must be outside Australia for a visa grant and believe they were, but were deemed not to be.

Oh, yes I have also seen/read the BVB on the DHA website. In my case we will apply PV onshore only. And as much as we could we are trying to stay onshore it's difficult going back with three kids with me as my partner will have to stay here to continue working to sustain us financially. Can't afford to be both not working now as PV is quite amount.

Our BVA grant stated it was valid until the 820 decision is made.
If the 820 is granted, the 820 automatically replaces the BVA.
If the 820 is refused, the BVA expires 28 days after your are notified.

Most 820's are currently finalised within 20 months, many at around 12 months.
