A 457 Family Visa is for the immediate family of a Temporary Work (Subclass 457) Visa holder. A Temporary Work (Subclass 457) visa holder can add their spouse or de facto partner and children to their visa as secondary applicants.
Adding a secondary applicant to a 457 Visa entitles a spouse or defect partner and immediate family of a 457 Visa holder to enter and remain in Australia while the main applicants visa is valid.

Adding family members
- Including family on your application – Eligible family members can be included on your original 457 Visa application.
- Adding family members later – Eligible family members can be added to your 457 Visa after it has been granted. This gives 457 Visa holders time to settle in Australia, or the opportunity to include a de facto partner if the relationship started after the application was granted.
