Minimum duration to stay in Australia after first entry?


I have independent skilled migrant visa (subclass 175), I received this visa on 3rd April 2013 valid till 3rd April 2018. On my grant letter it has been mentioned that I have to enter Australia by 14th January 2014.

I am planning to make my first entry to Australia on 20th September 2013 and will be coming back on 11th October 2013. This makes approximately 20 days of short trip.

I would like to know, is there any requirement of minimum duration to stay in Australia after my first entry? Or is it fine if I stay in Australia for 20 days during my first visit?

Anxiously waiting for the reply

No, there's no minimum time you have to stay as far as I know. As soon as you land and go through customs you've made "initial entry" and you're good to go.
