PR(190) Initial Entry (Getting a good job in another country)


I am at the stage of getting my visa grant soon for 190 Victoria State Sponsored PR.

I recently got an offer for a job with a very good salary in Europe.

What are my options now?
The visa will have a initial entry date probably around August 2014.
If I travel to Australia in May , what are the ways to keep my PR on for another 2-3 yrs?

Do I have to apply for RRV once I reach Australia or RRV is needed when I come to end of 5 yrs ?
Am a bit confused as to I heard of people who get the initial entry and then come back towards end of the 5yr period.But I have state sponsorship , so I need to live and work in Victoria for 2yrs.
So what are my options in this?
Can I enter Australia before initial entry and then come back after 3yrs? or I can come back towards end of 5yrs?

This job is for a 2 yr contract , later I donot know if it will extend or not.

The initial entry date must be met, in order to activate your visa. I'm not sure what would happen if you didn't do it by this date, but it's always safer to enter before as there is a chance your visa could expire/be cancelled. According to this forum, Activating 190 visa query, you are free to leave Australia after you do the first visit and activate your visa, so you could come for a day to Australia and leave afterwards (just for the purposes of activating the visa). You are legally entitled to leave and enter Australia in the first five year period, though I'm not sure if you leave for extensive periods of time the state will see it as a problem or not.

The RRV is actually required after the 5 year period. So, if you want to leave and wish to return to Australia, you must arrange this visa. However, you should keep in mind that a lot of people have had trouble getting citizenship because they have not lived in Australia enough while on their PR visa.

Best of luck

Note: On this forum post,, the user called divyap said that it is okay to live in a different country, just not a different state. However, you should consult with an agent, or contact the DIBP about this

Yes the initial entry date I will surely meet as I would come to Australia around may 2014.

Yes when it comes to citizenship surely they would need minimum 4yrs of continuous stay.

I think it answers my queries and I also went through that link you provided

thanks again

i think you need to check and bookmark the "must not arrive after XXX" date. This is because you would need to apply for RRV if you want to travel around that date. And you need to know that RRV is not a guarantee, you can be rejected or only given a very short RRV (e.g. 3 months) base on your circumstances.

Thanks yes I will keep a check on both dates
initial entry and must not arrive after XXX" date.

I understand that RRV is issued only when you show substantial ties.
So if I come back to Australia after say 3 or 4 yrs then I need to be living , working and things like this for sometime atleast to further get RRV if by any chance I need to go out again.
