Adding partner to 457 visa

Are you adding partner to 457 visa?

It’s always the best idea to include your partner as a dependant in your original 457 visa application even if he or she will not come with you to Australia straight away after a visa grant. Nonetheless if for some reasons they have not been included in visa application there are the ways to get them on your 457 visa afterward. Keep in mind an employer must agree to sponsor them for a 457 visa as well. There is no point of applying for a 457 visa for your partner if you will not be able to get a written agreement from your employer.

When can your partner be included in the Subclass 457 visa?

Add your partner in your initial visa application

When applying for your visa, you might also include your partner as a secondary applicant

Add your partner after your application has been lodged but not yet decided.

FORM 1436 might be used to include a partner to the application after it has been lodged, but not decided yet.

After you have already been granted your 457 visa

if your 457 visa has already been granted you’ll have to make a separate 457 visa application to get your partner attached to your visa as a dependant. There is a specific process you’ll have to follow to get a visa for your partner granted – you’ll have to apply for “subsequent entrant 457 visa application”. It gives a possibility for a visa grant for family members which were not included in initial visa application and also serves as a pathway for partners of 457 visa holders who came into a relationship with you after your 457 visa was granted.

What evidence do you need to provide?

If you are married to your partner and have lived in a spousal relationship for some time, marriage certificate shall be satisfactory. If you are living in a de-facto relationship you’ll have to provide with evidence you’ve been living together for at least half a year for your relationship to be considered by a Department of Immigration. Your evidence may include joint utility bills, joint financial documents, correspondences going to the same address, declarations from family and friends and any joint assets or liabilities. Essentially you’ll have to provide with some documents such as those for a partner visa. Whatever applies to a partner visa would apply over here as well.

Your partner might be requested by a case officer to provide with police clearance and undergo medicals. Remember also to include your spouse in your health insurance.

You still remember I’ve mentioned at the beginning of this article about your 457 visa sponsor written consent, right?

What your partner can do while on a 457 visa

Your partner can:

  • Work in Australia for any employer they want
  • Study in Australia
  • Travel to, enter and remain in Australia as long as your visa is valid
  • Apply for permanent residence with you

    Hi there,
    I can’t find any answers to my questions so far so I will give it a shot here.
    My partner has been granted a 457 visa for his job and I moved to Australia with him as his dependent. Our visa is valid for 4 years but one of the conditions of this visa is that he needs to have a contract with the institute that is sponsoring him. He initially got a one year contract on that is about to expire on the first of March this year. He is in the middle of renewing this contract but it probably won’t be done before the first of March (or if it doesn’t get extended at all) what does it mean for my job? Do I have to stop working as long as his contract is not extended? Or do I have a certain time frame in which I can continue my job? Is the visa somehow still temporarily valid after his contract expires?

    I hope you can help me out.

    Is it possible to put your partner on an 457 visa application if the partner already has a 457 visa? In this case I’m a partner on a 457 visa, I’m applying for one for my new job, she might lose her job, so I want her to be my partner on the new visa.

    Are there any limitations regarding where dependents can live on a 457? For example, I work in Adelaide and my partner (my dependent) is likely to find a job in Sydney. Is he able to move and start his job there now with the plan that I move over to Sydney when my contract is completed in Adelaide? (I would obviously continue to satisfy all other conditions of the visa). Many thanks.

      Your employer must agree to add her to your 457. Apart from that, there shouldn’t be any issues if she’s healthy with no criminal convictions. Let us know if you need assistance with a visa application. It can take up to 3 months from our recent experience.

    Hi,

    I’m Mexican and my fiancee is American. She’s the primary on the 457 and I’m her de-facto dependent.

    Do you know if I need biometrics since I’m Mexican?

    She didn’t need to submit them but, I’ve seen conflicting information online.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    We have applied for 457 visa on oct17th and submitted all required docs but still status is as Received . Please let me know whether we can apply for a visit visa now and get into Australia and later once we got 457 whether it will be upgraded automatically or we should come out of Australia and travel with 457.

    My partner applied for the 457 visa back in April and has still not had an answer. I was not included in this application because at the time we did not have enough evidence for defacto (5 months). My visa ended at the end of the year so we both left (his bridging visa has no been cancelled. Is it possible to add me to the application now while we are overseas as we have plenty of evidence (over a year). Thank you

      Subsequent 457 visa application needs to be lodged. You’ll pay a full fee ($1080 at the moment). Can take few months for a grant. The employer must agree to add you to 457.

    Hi,
    I am currently on 457 and have been working in Sydney for almost an year now. I applied for 457 dependent visas for my wife and child in November. It has already been 4+ months since the application lodgement.
    1. If I apply for tourist visa for them, will it impact their 457 application which is in process?
    2. If they travel to Australia on tourist visa and get their 457 at a later date, will their visa status be changed automatically (to 457) without a need to go out of the Aus?

I recently got married and I have submitted all documents and applied for my a dependent 457 visa for my wife in February 2018. Also, during February 2018, my employer applied for a 186 visa for both me and my wife. Now, I am currently waiting for my wife’s dependent 457 visa to get approved. Do you know what is the processing time for this visa?

    Also, can my wife apply for a tourist visa in the mean time so that she can join me here in Australia?

      Processing time for a 457 subsequent entrant is from few weeks to even a year (from what I have heard from some). You may apply for a visitor visa for her, but given she’s waiting for a decision on a 457 dependant visa it is very unlikely visitor visa would be granted.

    She holds a valid Tourist visa which was granted to her before applying for dependent VISA ( Valid till NOV’18).
    My question is can she travel on a tourist visa while dependent VISA in in process ? And can DIBP grant dependent VISA while she is Australia on a tourist VISA ??

      If her visitor visa is still valid, she might be able to visit you in Australia. For a dependant visa – a case officer will very likely wait until she’ll leave the country or will ask her to.

      It can take up to 9 months I’d say at the moment. We do not work on the cases of the other agents unless we’d be appointed as a sole agent and the whole file would be transferred to us. Please let us know if you’d like to resign from the services of your current agent / lawyer and transfer the case.

    Hi,
    I am currently on 457 visa and will expire April 2020. My wife and kids are here with me in Australia holding 457 dependent visa. We decided that my wife and kids will be going back to Philippines and stay there for a year temporarily to save money as preparation for applying our PR. My question, is there any restriction or maximum stay when you travel overseas for 457 dependent visa? or they can still come back to Australia even they stay there for a year? Based on my knowledge as a primary 457 visa I am only allowed to stay one month overseas. Is this True? Your reply would be a great help. Thank you

    I’ve read comments here and it said 2-3months
    Is there I can do to make process quicker?
    I’ve applied my partner visa through agency and they are not helpful at all
    So if other agency can help, we’d like to ask this company to help us

      Department has a lot of applications in their cue, therefore some delays are observed recently. Choosing the right agency in the first place could do the process more effective – now there’s not much we could do to assist.

          No way of knowing how much longer it may take without checking if your relationship is being considered genuine by a department.

    Hi there,

    In my case, my partern is under 457 while I am under 485 now, he said he would like to sponsor me if I cannot get my PR in 2 years.

    However, he used to sponsor another girl by marrying her one year ago but they ended up getting divorced in January 2018, and he withdrew his sponsorship for her so the girl did not get the PR at the end.

    I knew that one can only sponsor no more than 2 spouses and there should be an interval in between (I believe 5 years?)

    So I just want to confirm that if he can sponsor me regardless of the 5 year interval since his ex-wife did not receive a PR

      2 spouses and 5 years you are referring to is for partner visas. If we are talking about dependency for a temporary visa (such as 457 or 485) these factors are not being taken into consideration.

    Hi, I submitted my 457 visa application in February 2018 just before the visa was abolished in March 2018.
    At the time of submitting my application I asked my agent should I add my partner to my application to which they replied, “it doesn’t matter when you add your partner” so I didn’t add her at that time.

    Recently however,I contacted my agent to add my partner to my 457 application but now they are saying that because the 457 is now abolished that I will not be able to add my partner until I get my 457 visa granted. Can you please advise?

    Hi Charles,
    I have applied for 457 visa on March 8 2018. I got married in April. I’m waiting for the response of sponsorship letter which my employer has send to the immigration for him to be added to my visa. Could you please tell me whether my husband will also get the visa at the same time when I get my 457 visa. How long is the processing time for 457 visa now.
    Regards
    Sanu

      1. If your partner has beed added to pending application – both visas will get decided the same time.
      2. If a new application has been lodged for your partner (should not) – not necessarily the same time.
      Processing time for 457 depends if the application is complete, your relationship will be assessed as genuine, your occupation is not being flagged by a department, your employer is a respected company, and some other factors – can take up to a year. Let us know if you need a review of your application.

    Hi,
    I am currently on 457 and have been working in Sydney from last 2 months. My wife is also holding dependant 457 visa. I applied for 457 dependent visas for 6 month old child in this month.
    1. Any idea how much time it take in case of Child? Is processing faster in case of child since my wife is holding 457 dependant visa?
    2. If I apply for tourist visa for her, will it impact their 457 application which is in process?
    2. If she travel to Australia on tourist visa and get their 457 at a later date, will their visa status be changed automatically (to 457) without a need to go out of the Aus?

      Department has quite a backlog of 457 applications at the moment. 457 dependants applications are not being prioritized as I am aware. You should have considered applying for a visitor visa for a child and then for 457 once in Australia. Should you wish to discuss further, please book a consultation.

      Applying for tourist visa will not impact your 457 visa processing and for 457 it is not required to exit Australia. Once granted it will automatically transferred and tourist visa will be void. And moreover, currently processing time for 457 dependent is 10-14 months as shared by the department.

          Than your kid needs to exit Australia else it will violate the visa rules . He/she can re-enter Australia on visitor visa or wait outside until 457 is granted. He/she cannot stay in Australia on the terms that 457 is in process.

            If somebody likes to pay for flights back and forth – could be an option. Assuming a visitor visa will be granted at all.

    Hello,
    I’m currently on a 457 visa sponsored by a big company. I’m recently married to a man on a bridging visa B who’s been rejected a number of times for his visa so is now a section 48. We want to apply for him to become a dependent on my 457 (my company has already agreed to sponsor), and want to know if he can lodge the application overseas and come back while awaiting the decision, or if he needs to stay overseas the entire time the application is being considered? If he can come back after lodgement, how is this time period determined?
    Thank you so much.

    Hi, my husband holds a TSS (he is the primary visa holder and I am secondary). I start my job this week. He started his job about six weeks ago, but is very unhappy. If he quits or is fired, can I continue to work as a secondary visa holder? Thank you.

      You may be eligible to work as long as your visa is valid. Let us know if your husband will find another employer and will be willing to transfer his visa.
