Hi everyone, thanks for taking some time to read this.

I am USC and would like to petition for my parents who are both Filipino citizen but are currently living in Dubai. My father works in Dubai for almost 30 years now but still a filipino citizen. Will it be a problem to petition them while they reside in dubai? Or do they need to go back to their homeland(Philippines) and process it all there?

If there is a US embassy in Dubai, your parents don't have to go back to the philippines for their interview. Once you receive a correspondence from NVC with their case number, you can email NVC to request for a transfer.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Request a transfer of what? And to where?

Thanks again.

Request a transfer of your case. Once USCIS approves the petition, they forward the case to NVC.NVC assigns the case number for your petition. It will look like MNL01234567. MNL means Manila, that'll be the US embassy where the immigrant will be interviewed. Once you have a case number, if you need to transfer the case to Dubai, you have to email NVC then so your parents do not have to go back to the Philippines for the interview. That's what I did for my husband. He was in South Korea when I started the process. He's Filipino but working abroad. As soon as I got his case number, I emailed tthem to request for a transfer from Manila,Philippines to South Korea because he was wroking there. But my husband has an alien registration card that time. I think that made a difference. His alien registration card is like a permanent resident card here in the states.

No need to transfer, can go straight to their local consulate.

If their current residence address is in Dubai, their case will be processed there. No need for transfers.
