Adding a partner to a 482 visa
Plan your future correctly with the advice of a Registered Migration Agent
What is a 482 (Subsequent Entrant) visa?
If you have a partner that holds a subclass 482 – Temporary Skill Shortage visa (Employer-Sponsored visa) you may be able to be added to their visa.
As the visa applicant, you must:
- be the spouse or de facto partner of a subclass 482 visa holder
- provide a written letter from the sponsor extending their sponsorship obligation to include you as a family member in the nomination.
meet all other criteria for the grant of this visa, including any health and character requirements.
You can be inside or outside Australia at the time of applying for the visa.
You will be granted a 482 visa. Your visa expiry date will be the same date as your spouse or partners 482 visa expiry date.
Note: If your spouse or partner did not declare your relationship in their 482 visa application then adding you to their visa may not be straightforward. If this is the case, it is highly recommended that you schedule a consultation so we can assess your situation prior to commencement.
Step 1: Consultation & Assessment
The first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our Registered Migration Agents. During the consultation, we can assess both you and your partner’s current situations, your backgrounds, your relationship and your eligibility to meet the legal requirements for this visa.
Providing you and your sponsor will be eligible to meet the requirements of this visa prior to lodgement we will send you a fixed fee quote following the consultation.
We offer a split fee payment of our professional fees to assist you financially during the preparation stages of your partner visa journey.
Step 2: Preparation
We will then look after the entire process for you and assist you with strengthening your supporting evidence prior to lodgement. We have templates to guide you in preparing your evidence in accordance with the applicable legislation. We will provide you with your login details to our secure online portal upon commencement. This portal is used to safely and securely share important and confidential information and documents presented in your applications.
As every relationship and partner visa is different, we will provide you with tailored document checklists relevant to you and your partner’s specific situations.
We will complete all the necessary forms, applications and further submissions on your behalf.
You can rest assured that your Registered Migration Agent has prepared and lodged hundreds of applications similar to yours and is experienced in preparing ‘decision ready’ applications. It is important that we get it right the first time. For this reason, we will only lodge your applications once we are confident they have been prepared correctly.
Step 3: Lodgement
Your visa application is lodged with the Department of Home Affairs (the DOHA). The main criterion is that the relationship meets the requirements referred to above. In addition, you must meet the standard health and character checks.
If you are inside Australia, you will be granted a bridging visa that will allow you to remain inside Australia whilst a decision on your visa is being made. This bridging visa will become active once your current visa expires. We will advise you accordingly regarding the conditions that may be imposed on this bridging visa.
