Hi all - very informative and it sounds like that as long you can prove the relationship then your partner can be added to the 457?

Our circumstances are similar in someways. We are both currently here on a 417 currently (been together 6 yrs and own property back in uk) and my partners employer is going to start process the 457 4 year. However my employer has also stated the intention to sponsor me also but has yet to get the ball rolling.

What I am wondering if I don't apply now to go on my partners 457 and my company in fact do not end up processing my visa, can I apply at later date to be added to my partners 457 visa? If so what would this process be - would it be to submit an online application as they did above with any relevant evidence?

I'm almost thinking its easier and safer just to be added to my partners visa now - but would it not be safer to have an independent visa? Not that either one of us should get fired (touch wood) but I've read if I'm reliant upon my partners visa and they do fire, then it would effect both parties?

Let me know your thoughts guys

Thanks a bunch

Either way you get put on as a secondary applicant to your partners 457 visa, he being the primary applicant, your visa will be dependent on his visa.
It is a pretty simple process for a secondary applicant to be added in the initial position nomination stage as application form shows - http://www.immi.gov.au/allforms/pdf/1196n.pdf
Then with your partner doing his bit as in Temporary Business (Long Stay) - Standard Business Sponsorship (Subclass 457) he shows you as being his partner for a secondary visa.

If the company has not shown you as a secondary applicant in the nomination, I'd be asking why not?

Hi Raul,

Please advise what contitutes "associated sponsorship obligations" as mentioned in your reply earlier?

"The employer has to provide a letter stating that they will support the addition of your partner to your 457 visa and accept the associated sponsorship obligations. It has nothing to do with supporting her financially."

Regards,
SW

Register your relationship

Register your relationship with the State in which you live. Its the same place you register deaths, births and marriages. It costs like $200. Read the website for the implications of this. Basically same as de facto

Then open a joint bank account immediately. Start depositing money into it. And start debitting bills off of it.

Collect all emails from all the years

Write a statutory declaration saying that you've been together for however long

Collect all photos

Get a friend each to write a letter confirming how long s/he has known you as a couple

Supply all this information as part of your application to put your partner as a dependent on your 457. She will have no restrictions on where she can work. She will have all the rights of other holders of 457

Hi,

I wonder if you could help me. I've been reading through all the comments but I don't 100% understand.

My situation is as follows:
  • My boyfriend is getting sponsored by his job and his application process has begun
  • My job has offered to sponsor me but I'm unsure if it will go ahead in time, before my visa expires

If my boyfriends sponsorship is confirmed/accepted and I am still on my 417 visa can I be added onto his visa (de facto) after all his paperwork has already been processed!? I'm just worried about one of us losing a job so that is why separate visas would be ideal.

If anyone could help out that would be great.

Not that I'm an expert in this field, but when we had issue's with immigration for my mother, we sought the advice of an immigration lawyer, as opposed to an immigration consultant. In one session he managed to provide accurate and current advice which allowed us to make an informed decision.

Google for "Australian Immigration lawyer", and you should get some good results.

(Someone like: Australian Immigration Lawyers. | Australia's most experienced lawyers Immigration Lawyers. should be able to help)

This thread has been very helpful to me and I thank you! My situation is almost identical but I have a question. My girlfriend is here on a employee sponsored 457 and is eligible to apply for her PR this month. We have been living together for 2 months (in australia) now with both names on the lease and have a shared bank account and car and are waiting until we have 6 months living together before I apply to go under her 457.

I'm in Australia on a tourist visa and have extended it to 6 months which will be the exact day we will have are 6 months proof of de facto.

Question: If I apply on the day my tourist visa expires from with the country will I receive a bridging visa until the decision is made? or do I have to leave the country because my 6 month tourist visa is up?
