Exclamation From a Tourist Visa to Partner Visa

Hey guys,

I'm currently holding a Visitor Visa 600 with no work rights, I've been with my girlfriend for less than a year now, and today I just applied for a partner Visa 820.

It says on the grant letter that my bridging visa A (BVA) will be active only when my tourist visa ends in March 2021.

I got 2 questions regarding work rights:
- When my Tourist Visa ends in March 2021, will the BVA give me full working rights instantly?
- Can I make a specific request under my current visa to have any working rights before March 2021?

Thank you

You may have a very serious problem! regarding your application.

If your visa is not decided by March 2021 - yes the BVA will have full work rights.

What do you mean I may have a serious problem?
Except for the fact that I cannot work until March 2021, I got all evidences/proof/receipt that the relationship is genuine and we're also about to get our civil partnership application done too

Thank you
De facto partners
To be a de facto partner, you must be in a de facto relationship.

you and your partner are in a de facto relationship if all these apply:
you are not married to each other
you are committed to a shared life to the exclusion of all others
your relationship is genuine and continuing
you live together or do not live separately and apart on a permanent basis
you are not related by family
Usually your de facto relationship must have existed for at least 12 months immediately before you apply for the visa. Time spent dating or in an online relationship might not count as being in a de facto relationship.

The 12-month requirement will not apply if you can show us compelling and compassionate circumstances exist to grant the subclass 820 visa.

The 12-month requirement also will not apply if:

your partner holds or held a permanent humanitarian visa
your de facto relationship existed before we granted their visa
your de facto partner told us about the relationship before we granted their visa
It also will not apply if you:

are in a de facto relationship with a partner who is an applicant for a permanent humanitarian visa, or
you have registered your relationship with an Australian authority such as a registry of births, deaths and marriages
You might still be granted the temporary visa if your relationship has broken down or if your sponsor died.
