how long does it take for immi to make decision on temporary visa for partner visa?

Hi, my partner got an automated bridging visa after submitting payment for the partner visa application online. My question is how long does it usually take for immigration to make a decision on the temporary visa given that the bridging visa is only 28days. His holiday visa will expire soon and that would kick in but we would like to find out roughly how long it takes? Also whats the average waiting time for temporary to go on permanent visa.

The Bridging Visa A is NOT only valid for 28 days. You're misreading it. AFTER a decision is made on your application, if it's negative, the BVA allows you 28 days in the country to get your things together and leave. If the decision is positive, of course, you wouldn't have to leave! The Bridging Visa A is valid UNTIL a decision is made on your visa application. Wait times for temporary partner visa processing are currently 12-15 months in most cases, so you'll likely be on that BVA for quite a while.

You'll be eligible to be reassessed for Permanent Residency two years after you APPLIED for your 820 (temporary partner visa). Once you send in documents for that, if processing times are still the same then as they are now, you'd wait about 3-4 months after that date for your PR to come through.
Original Nationality: US
Visa #1: PMV (300) through Washington, D.C

Visa Granted: January 2014.
Visa #2: Subclass 820 (From PMV).

Visa Granted: Early July 2014.
Visa #3: 801 (PR)
Eligibility Date: End of April 2016 (Applied a month prior).
