PR Application Secondary Applicant Advice needed

I am currently on my student visa, and my girlfriend of 6 years is applying for her permanent residency next February. Her migration agent advised her that I could be nominated as a secondary applicant on her application as well.

Can anyone verify this? Also, has anyone successfully gone through this process before or knows of someone who has done so successfully?

thanks alot!

People are part of visa applications as a secondary applicant all the time where a married person or one in a defacto relationship applies for a skilled visa/
There is a relationship requirement that can be found under eligibility for most visas and the test for eligibility is nominally showing evidence of having been in a relationship for a minimum of 12 months and it is considered normal for the couple to have been living together in that relationship immediately prior to the application.
But read up on it including the CAQ that will give you an idea of what is included and what's not.
It does mean you need to be in a defacto relationship more so than just Bf/Gf.
There is also the onshore/offshore situation that needs to be considered re all visas and if you are rejected as a secondary applicant, your Gf will also have her application rejected as far as I know, but something she may want to query the agent on or you can check with Immi for the cost of a local call - 131881

awesome, thanks for that mate.

I've had a read through the requirements of a de facto relationship, and i'm pretty sure that we fulfil most of the criteria and have supporting evidence/paperwork as well.

Could you elaborate abit more on the onshore/offshore bit though?

thanks!

Visas are either onshore/offshore and what your Gf applies for will depend on her circumstances and you would also need to meet the same conditions.
