Subclass 457 secondary applicant

Hello,
My name is Isabela, I'm Colombian. I'm writing to you because my partner and I have some concerns regarding to visa application (457) because he wants to add me as a secondary applicant. In last March I tried to apply for a tourist visa but it was canceled. My husband obtained his visa 457 some months ago and we got marry in my country three weeks ago. He wants to add me as a dependant to this visa but we are worried due to the fact the tourist one was canceled. At the moment I'm living in Colombia and he in Australia. Therefore we would like to know if it may affect lodgment for 457 as secondary applicant? If immi will take that situation ( one visa canceled) to make a decision?

I hope you can help us!

Best wishes!

Isabela

Was the tourist visa granted and subsequently cancelled or was it refused and on what grounds?

It was refused.
This is what they wrote: "I have considered the applicant’s personal situation, and on balance I am not satisfied that she has established strong incentives that would encourage her to return to her home country at the end of the period of the visa. I have put particular weight on the fact that the applicant earns a modest salary, has no personal funds and no strong family ties to Colombia" that my intend wasn't come back to my country.

Ok, in that case it shouldn't affect the sc. 457 application as such. The sponsor needs to write a letter of support and you must make sure you meet all the other requirements; relationship, medical insurance, health , etc.

A refused visa would be looked at differently than a cancelled one. You may have better success with the 457 subsequent entry, but you'll still need to provide good evidence that you and your husband are in a genuine relationship.

Ok many thanks! It was very helpful.
Now, I'd like to know how can we prove our relationship as genuine, which documents or proves besides the marriage certificate would be required? Also, to lodge the application has to be online, can be done from Colombia or my husband has to do it in Australia?

The application can be done online. You can use the partner visa checklists as a guide to the relationship evidence, although it does not need to be as extensive. The sponsor must provide a letter of support. You should address the previous tourist visa refusal as well.

If in doubt, consult with a registered migration agent.

Hi can someone shed some light under what category I put the letter of support from my hubbies sponsoring company to say they will take on the obligations for myself and our three kids? I can't see where I could attach it to. Any help would be appreciated I've been at this all day and still don't know where to attach the letter and under what category to attach it to
