A simple question regarding 485 SE

I am holding 485 visa and so is my partner.
my partner's 485 visa expires in 2022 because her visa is for 4 years. Can she include me as a subsequent entrant in her 485 visa?

Given the insanely high refusal rate of DIY 485 visa applications ( have a look through this forum) I respectfully suggest you invest a few hundred dollars to get proper professional advice about the best way forward.

I just received my 485 visa today. I didn't seek paid consultation, everything was free and available online. Like, every single piece of information. I got my visa approved in less than 5 weeks after applying (although the DIBP quotes 4 months as a current processing time). What I did was, I read the resources in this forum along with some google search and I asked so many questions here, I was good to go!

The 485 visa application is straightforward, similar to other TR work visas. Though it's much much more expensive and requires a "documents collection" approach.

Applicants just need to carefully READ the requirements in DIBP website, collect the documents before hand and be cautions about document dates. Never apply before you have all the required documents in hand and these documents are reviewed. It's a do-it-your-self task, just need time and some organization. So easy!

This forum is a great resource! Thanks all

I am contacted almost every week, sometimes more than once a week by DIY applicants who have been refused 485 visas for one avoidable reason or another.

Your advice is sound and, yes, most sc. 485 applications should be relatively straightforward. In reality though, they seem to be beyond the capabilities of many people and there are lots and lots of totally unnecessary refusals.This forum is full of cases where something has gone wrong.

People not only have their future plans ruined, they may also face all sort additional expenses, because of the refusal. All that could have been avoided by a simple consultation with a Registered Migration Agent.

It never ceases to amaze me that people will spend tens of thousands of dollars on their education, but are so reluctant to spend a few hundred dollars on professional advice that could have saved so much misery and expense.

The 485 is one visa I always caution people to use a migration agent even if only for an initial consultation. I think it seems pretty simple on the surface to most people, but many are in a hurry to get an application in before their current visa expires and they don't have all the documents in order or some other avoidable issue.

Not being ready before a current visa expiry is not necessarily fatal.

Not having the required supporting evidence to lodge before the expiry of the 6-month post Australian Study Requirement criterion is much more interesting.

I have seen too many refusals, because of very basic mistakes re. police certificates, English requirements and so on.

I think many people do not realise how unforgiving and inflexible the system is. Some seem to be under the impression that after they lodge the application, some kind uncle will guide them through the process and will give them an opportunity to rectify any mistakes.

I have seen plenty of applications refused where police certificates were applied for on the same day as the application was lodged instead of at least one day before. It's very harsh.

I am not saying this because I want to generate business for myself. I know that most 485 applicants simply do not see the value in paying a professional with their application, relying on other sources instead. That's fine by me. The reason I am saying this is as a warning to people not to take this lightly. It may be easy for some, but for many others it is not. I think it is too bad that so many people contact me after their application has been refused instead of seeing me before lodging the application.
