Default About Spouse Visa?

Hy everyone,

I am currently in Australia, and have applied for Graduate Visa 485 and has been granted Bridging Visa A.The new priority list will affect my 485 visa application and I don't how much time will it take for decision.
My question is that, Can I sponsor my wife while I am on bridging visa ?
Would the Australian Immigration allow her to join me or not?

Thanks,
ALI

Hi Ali,
You cant sponsor ur wife when you are on a bridging Visa.
She can come here on a tourist or student visa as far as I know.
Regards,
Faru

I have corrected the title for you as this question does not refer to a Spouse visa, but to a spouse on a 485.

These 485 visas are not affected by processing priorities and are done as quickly as possible.

You should have included her as a secondary applicant on the visa when you applied.

You can add her once it is granted though see here

Default Re: Briging Visa and way of bringing my wife

This is a very important question and I have wondered about it too.....The trouble is that, according to my understanding, you can only incldue your wife if she is also onshore if you are applying for onshore visa........If OP applies for offshore visa while being in Australia then he could include his wife but it takes away the benefit of bridging visa and if any other visas he has run out, then he will have to leave Australia.

I will be grateful if some expert advice is given regarding this.

Default Re: Briging Visa and way of bringing my wife

when main applicant gets granted the 485 visa, a partner can then apply for the 485 whether inside or outside Australia. It is processed pretty quickly as it is not affected by processing priorities. If applied for while outside Australia, applicant can be in or outside Australia at time of grant - so if arrives on other visa in the eman-time, would not have to leave Australia for grant eventhough was off-shore at time of application.

Regards


Tony

No-one can tell you how long it will take to process a visa, especially that far ahead. I suggest you consult a registered migration agent in order to avoid getting into a tangle with different visa types.

Your wife can't apply for a spouse / partner visa as you are not a citizen or permanent resident and thus cannot sponsor her. I assume what you mean is you want to add a spouse onto your existing visa? To avoid any confusion, you should be clear about what you are trying to do.
