I have already moved to Metropolitan since last November after 3 or 4 phone calls to the department (different officer) where their replies were almost the same: (as you are saying there are now no conditions on your bridging visa (VEVO), then you may proceed to (live and work) as per these new "No conditions"!) Non of them had given me any word (or impression) of objection to the intended move.
I also sent email to the department (Team 10) with reminder (one week gap) to get their (no objection) or comments on my intention to move. but as usual, no response yet
below is the content of the Reminder!
Following to my below notice (email) sent since one week, I would like to confirm that I have already received the Job offer and have been requested to join the company located in !!!!!!!!!! on 15th November 2018.
Since I have not yet received any response to my below inquiry, I hereby record that we are going to proceed with the move next week, considering your no-response to be a confirmation from your side that there are no requirements/procedures that we (Names of the family members!!!!!!!) need to follow for moving to metropolitan area at this stage.
Moreover, we also consider your no-response to be a confirmation from your side that this move has no impact on processing our 887 application.
If you have any comment/clarification on the above, let us know, please
This is my own experience that may not apply to others, but i am sharing it for the sake of guidance that may help somebody in need!
Applied 12 Feb. 2018, finger crossed!
