I've seen a similar scenerio discussed on another forum, can't recall where, but I don't think it's that simple. If I recall correctly, your spouse may have to leave the country and then apply for a visa as a dependant. If you do it right it's staightforward, if you do it wrong you'll have a world of hurt.

I'd check with your company's immigration lawyer or get your own lawyer to advise.
