Contributory Parent Visa - Sponsor Question


I am a little confused by Immi's definition to be an eligible sponsor.

When they refer to settled status, are they saying that I need to of lived in Australia for two years and have permanent residency.

Or are they saying, I need to of had permanent residency FOR two years?

I have recently been granted my 820 partner visa (yay!) and the next step is 801, I was just wanting to get an idea in my head that if my parents did want to move here, when would I be eligible to sponsor them.

Thanks in advance

‘Settled’ (in relation to an Australian citizen, an Australian
permanent resident or an eligible New Zealand citizen) means
lawfully resident in Australia for a reasonable period. Under
policy, the ‘reasonable period’ is at least 2 years. Periods of
lawful temporary residence may be counted towards the
‘settled’ requirement, depending on the circumstances of that
temporary residence. The ‘settled’ requirement is assessed at
the time the visa application is lodged.

There is more to it.
