Members of your family unit (your wife) can make a combined application with your 485 visa application. So no need to separately apply for her visa, regardless of her current location. Only primary applicant (you) has to be onshore at the tie of visa application and grant. All secondary applicants (your wife or other dependent) may be inside or outside Australia at the time of combined visa application and visa grant.Hi, i am applying for 485 visa (with wife) onshore. Do i need to apply separately for my wife or a same application is enough? She is currently living outside Australia. I am confused if we need to wait for my graduate visa to granted before she can apply. please help
However visa to all the secondary applicant will only be granted after you (as a primary applicant) have been granted your visa first.
