600 Visa to 820 Visa - Questions


I am just wondering the following, my husband and I are both currently in the UK and plan to return to Sydney together ASAP. Our situation is as follows:

My husband got a multiple stay (3 month max) 12 month Visitor Visa (600) in March this year. We traveled to Australia in April 2019 and stayed for 2 weeks and then came back to the UK.

We now want to return to Australia and may or may not decide to apply for his 820 visa from Australia.

He is in the UK on a spouse visa currently (I have sponsored him here too - but my preference is to live in Australia hence the thought of moving). I believe most of the evidence we provided for him to come to the UK will be similar and able to be used again for the Australian visa.

If we apply from Australia, does he have to wait the 3 months (until the current visitor visa ends) until the Bridging Visa A comes in to effect and more importantly he could work, or will he receive it immediately after applying and be able to work, OR will he receive it after the total visa stay ends which is March 2020?

There are two conditions on his 600 visa which are no work and not to study past 3 months.

Does anyone have the questions that are asked for the 820 visa? I don't want to log in and look at the questions and then Immigration think that we might come to Australia on false pretenses on our next trip - because this is totally undecided and if we do decide to stay on our next trip - it will not be something that we are going there for specifically - it is just we may decide to do this in our future as an option so I want to see what we should expect....

Thank you in advance.

The bridging visa A with full work rights would come into effect once the stay period of the tourist visa has expired.

Thank you for your swift reply. Is there any way we can ask that he gets work rights immediately?
