Post Subclass 485 - Spouse visa

Hello!

I have recently got married n my husband is in Australia on a subclass 485 visa. Im in India and have to apply for the same visa as a dependant. What is the processing time for such applications. Also, is it possible that I travel to Australia as a tourist after filing the Subclass 485 visa.

Was unable to get much info from the immi website. Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

It is only a guide because of the many variables but have a look @ Client Service Charter
You may be able to apply for a tourist visa though I've read in past of there being special forms in use locally in India and it is likely a tourist visa if granted would have a no further stay condition applied and you'll need to be outside Australia to have your partner visa granted.

Hi Anu,
If your husband currently holds a valid subclass 485 visa you can make application to be added as a partner. You can be on or off shore both at time of lodgement and grant.
This is a paper based application as there is no online facility.

Thanks for the information. I had a look at the Client Service Charter link n the processing time for d application is 10 months which is awfully long..
I know it sounds silly but is there any way to expedite the process after the application is filed?

Thanks

There's no way of expediting visa processing times but you can sure make it longer if you do not get an application correct.

You should also note the eligibility criteria, including having held an eligible visa - Skilled – Graduate (Temporary) visa (subclass 485)

the next tourist visa could run out before the 485 visa is ready for granting and note eligibility requirement as above, the next tourist visa also likely to heve a NFS condition.

Hi Anu,
My position is same as yours. I have submitted my 485 application last week.
Just wanted to know if you have applied and got your visa? I have heard a person telling she got it in 2 months.
And, is it possible to frontload medicals in India, i.e.,before the case officer asks to take medicals?

Hello Ppl

I have just gone thru all the posts and it is like different case scenarios.
Well i think I would come under such one. After asking immigration agents and members from the department of immigration -confusion continues to linger.

I am on a 485 visa and that is gonna expire in april 2011. i have already applied for permanent residency in Jan 2010. well so far no news from the case officer....thats no good news

Recently i got married in june and now diff agents are advising in diff ways..
Agent 1: add your spouse to the visa 485
Agent 2: do not add your spouse to the 485 visa as a partner, it could extend the PR process
Agent 3: get her on a tourist visa
Agent 4: fill up a new application and get an employer sponsored temporary visa

With so much to offer ( )and to not know what exact would be best. I would ask the Top gurus what they think.

Waiting
Ravi

There's not a lot of experience on the forum of people going down the 485 partner path and if anything I'd think if you're eligible and can find an employer that can and will sponsor you, it might be worth considering as being less complex re a partner.
But again, remember temporary visas are exactly that.

Thanks buddy for the quick reply.
The employer is happy to sponsor me. When i asked the agent, she was like add your spouse as a secondary applicant instead.
Will have to think about it i guess.
cheers
Ravi
