Student Visa - Adding Your Partner or Spouse
If you currently hold a Student visa it is possible to add your spouse or de facto partner to your student visa as a secondary applicant.
Your partner can be in Australia or outside Australia
Your spouse or de facto partner can be inside or outside Australia at the time of applying for the visa.
Your spouse or de facto partner will be granted a student visa with the same work rights you have on your student visa, which will expire on the same date as your student visa.
Important to know!
Whilst adding your partner is a relatively straightforward process, you cannot do so if you did not disclose your partner or spouse on your original Student Visa application.
If you find yourself in this situation, you will need professional advice to overcome this issue.
