Add Partner to Student Visa or 457?


The scenario is:

- Currently in Australia on Student Visa
- Did not add partner (fiance) on application (stupid mistake)
- Partner is from our home country (not Australia)
- Been together 4 years and are engaged
- We don't like being apart and now she wants to join me here in AU
- Looking to get married in July back in our home country
- Been offered a job in AU and am looking to convert my Student Visa to 457


Do I add my fiance to my Student Visa before I convert to 457? or do I wait and add her on my 457 application as my wife?

Which kind of visa/etc would be the most appropriate? She will just work here as normal after she joins me.

If you failed to declare a partner in your student visa application, you have provided the minister with information that was false or misleading in a 'material particular'. A material particular is one that MIGHT have been (not was) taken into account when assessing a visa application. This could have serious consequences for a future application and for the visa you hold. You will have to correct your error at some stage. May I suggest that you consult a registered migration agent about this?
