De facto visa

I've been all over the place trying to find a visa to get to work in Australia! I am in a de facto relationship with my boyfriend who is relocating to Australia for work. I know I would be elligible for a de facto visa if he were a permanent resident from his employer sponsored visa. However, his visa is a subclass 406 with the US goverment. Does anyone know if I would be able to get a de facto visa when he has that type of visa? Thanks!

406 visa allows partners as secondary applicants (providing you've been living together for 6 months or are married). Government Agreement Visa (Subclass 406)

Definition of a partner : Partner

A partner is your spouse or de facto partner (including same-sex partners).

My random thoughts about emigrating to Australia ::

Make sure he lists you as his partner and your intention to travel to Australia too.
There'll be some evidence required for your relationship though it'll not be as onerous as that for sponsoring a partner and the 406 being a government finite term visa, there'll possibly be less scrutiny.
If its CIA London desk to Canberra to keep our Mr.Rudd in check, that'll be good though Canberra can be a tad boring! JJ, though not about turkey Rudd.
