VISA application change

Default VISA application change


My partner has recently been granted a 457 working visa and I have been granted as his DEFACTO.

My company is now offering to sponsor me, so I would then be a primary 457 holder.

My questions are as follows.

1. While this VISA is being processed will my DEFACTO visa still be active or will I go on a bridging VISA again?
2. Can my partner apply to go DEFACTO on my VISA at the same time he has a 457 of his own or would this application cancel his VISA?

Will there be any advantage in you becoming the primary applicant, especially considering future pathways to PR ?

If you applied for 457 visa in your own right, you would be granted a bridging visa, but it would not come into effect until your current 457 visa ceased.
