How many years to stay before RRV

Hi, I am a new migrant got approved a 190 visa. I am currently working in Singapore and have a stable job here. While i am searching online for new jobs in Australia, and only plan to move after i secure one there, i just wanted to know, out of 5 years minimum how many years i have to stay in Australia to get the RRV? Is there any specific time given?

Have a read of this document:

Resident Return visa (subclasses 155 and 157)

Spending 2 of the 5 years in Australia will gtee you a 5 year RRV. But you can also get shorter RRV depending on your ties to Australia and how long you have spent there.

Depending on your industry you might have a very difficult time getting a job before you arrive - very few people are this lucky.

Visa: 820/801 Partner (Defacto) from WHV
Nationality: British
Applied: Online, Onshore (Melbourne)
Application Date: 5th February 2014
Police Checks: 5th February 2014
Medicals: 5th February 2014
GRANT DATE: 4th June 2014

Hi Engaus, Thanks a lot for your reply. If i buy a property there, will that be considered for a RRV even if my stay is shorter than 2 years? Any idea on this?

I am in construction industry. How is my chance to get a job offshore?

Slim to nil.

Because of so many people looking for work in Australia employers can easily employ people that are currently in Australia. It is easier for them to interview people already in Australia and they can start ASAP.
