About the Subclass 500 Student Visa
If you currently hold a student visa (Subclass 500 visa), it is possible to add your partner as a secondary applicant after the visa is granted.
The Requirements – Adding A Secondary Applicant
To meet the criteria to add your spouse or partner to your student visa you must either be:
- Married to your spouse
- Able to prove you have lived in a de facto relationship with your partner for at least 12 months
- Be able to prove that you are currently living with your partner and in a position to register your relationship on an Australian State or Territory government Relationship Register, before a decision is made on your application
When your partner is granted their visa as a secondary applicant, they will be subject to the same work rights restrictions as you are on your student visa.
If you or your partner are wondering how to go about this or if you meet the right criteria, we always advise it is best to book a consultation with one of our registered migration agents where we can got through your entire case with you and let you know if this is the right path for your future.
