adding spouse to an existing 457 visa

Hi,
I am a newbie here and please be nice to my thin question, thanks.

My husband was granted 457 visa last year. I am now holding a student vias, which will expire at the end of this year and I want to be added to my husband's 457 visa so that I can continue to live with him in Australia and get a job if possible.

An agent advised me to lodge a SEPARATE 457 visa application to be added as a dependant - same form and fee. My husband's employer has provided me with a support letter. My questions are:

(1)where do I need to indicate that I am applying as my husband's dependent?
(2)Are there any differences between an independent applicant like my husband and a secondary applicant like me in terms of filling the form and the application procedure?
(3)Is my current OSHC insurance enough, which will expire in October?
(4)Do I need to have my health checked before I lodge online?
(5)Will the DIAC refuse my application because there are still several months before the expiration of my current student visa?
(6)How long will it take for me to get approved and granted the visa?

Your answers will be appreciated.

1 - Write a cover letter and attached it on the front of the application so that visa oficer read it before loking at the application form.
2- Fill the sections which are relevant and the ones which do not apply to you like job tike etc etc put N/A and if any info is required visa officer will ask you.
3- As soon you will lodge the 457 visa your student visa will be unvalid and you will be on bridging visa so you will require to show the health insurance.
4- ypu can do your medicals before lodging or after lodging the visa or even u can wait until visa officer ask you for it. Medical is valid for 12 months so no issue.
5- no they will not reject youon this base its not a problem.
6- probably between 4-8 weeks

Cheers

Thank you so much Saki

BTW, when do I need to buy the health insurance? Before lodging or after lodging the visa? Is the insurance company designated or chosen by myself?

Thanks.

Get insurance before you lodge the visa. You can choose any insurance company which you like but my suggestion wud be to get a couple insurance from the same provider with whom your husband have insurance it will cost u less. The cheapest one for 457 is IMAN health insurance.

Cheers
