17 Nov 2022 Author : Scholab

Australia is a great place to work and live in. It is also one of the most popular study destinations amongst international students. There are over 1000 educational institutions, and they all have a great reputation for their ability to provide high-quality education and student satisfaction.  

Are you planning to migrate to Australia? Want to take your spouse with you? 

As many as 35 countries around the world, allow the married spouse to work in the country, including Australia. Spouses can be taken to countries abroad through a Dependant Visa. Dependant Visa is a tool that helps a person take their spouse with them to a country where they will be doing their studies. This type of visa allows professionals, students, permanent residents, and others to have a smoother journey.  

If you are an Indian student migrating from Qatar to Australia, then here are the things you need to know. 

  • A professional person or a student can bring their spouse to Australia through a Dependent Visa program. The spouse can work in the country depending on their degrees or qualifications.
  • Spouses can either attach a visa application for them on your original student visa application. Or your spouse is expected to submit their visa application later once you have started your study program in Australia. In that way, they can move to the country later.
  • The holder of a student spouse visa in Australia will be given the work rights depending on the level of study he or she is doing. Keep in that mind before migrating to Australia.

 Work rights depending on the level of study will be given as follows:  

  • If the student is doing an undergraduate (UG) degree, the dependent partner can work for as long as 20 hours a week.
  • If the student is doing a postgraduate (PG) degree or a doctorate (PhD) degree, the dependent partner will have no limitations.  

Documents You Need To Submit To Get This Visa 

  • Form 919, Nomination of student dependents: this type of form is used by Student (Temporary) (Class TU) visa holders in Australia who wish to nominate members of their family unit to join them. 
  • Form 157A, Application for a student visa: for those students who wish to change their principal course at any time during their studies.
  • Letter from a teacher mentioning the following details:
  • Your course's name
  • Your course's length
  • Your course's expected completion time
  • If all the course requirements are flawlessly met by you
  • Proof of financial support: to show that you have funds to take care of your family members.
  • Proof of familial ties: a marriage certificate or birth certificate
  • Proof of school enrolment: this must be included if there are school-aged children.
  • Proof of health insurance for your spouse and others.
  • Character certificates: you may have to submit police background checks.  

It can take up to 15 to 28 months based on the category, to complete the Australia Spouse Visa application process.

Why Australia?

  • Australia as a nation is open to immigrants and their families.
  • The country supports international students by giving provisions for their spouses or partners to stay and work.
  • Australia has created a multicultural society where people from different communities and religions are respected and welcomed with open arms.
  • Australia is popular among international students because of its high standards of living. As a matter of fact, the living expenses and tuition costs are considerably lower in Australia than compared in the United States.
  • Universities and colleges in Australia offer a wide variety of choices when it comes to courses or programs.
  • International students can choose from universities, vocational education, and English language training.
  • If you are a science or engineering student then Australian universities offer a lot of opportunities for scientific research, technology, and innovations.
  • While studying, international students themselves can work up to 20 hours per week. In that way, you will get work experience along with exposure.
