The US consulate in Yemen is closed because of the fighting. Who knows when it will be open. I was wondering if I could transfer the case to another country. I know she would have to obtain a visa to that country. But has anyone ever tried this or have any suggestions??

Yes, it looks like you can transfer to a US embassy of your choice. From the US embassy in Yemen's website (http://yemen.usembassy.gov/visas.html):

"Immigrant visa applicants who have not yet been interviewed by a consular officer may request another U.S. embassy or consulate that process immigrant visa applications to accept their immigrant visa cases for processing. Any request must be sent directly to the Immigrant Visa Section of the relevant U.S. embassy or consulate. Information on which U.S. embassies and consulates process immigrant visas is available at www.travel.state.gov. Immigrant visa fees which have been paid to the U.S. Embassy in Sana'a or to the National Visa Center in the United States are valid for visa processing at another U.S. embassy or consulate. "

Yes thank you, but I was wondering because the embassies I've contacted said they require a "resident visa". Some NVC representatives told me they need a visa that allows you to stay for 6 months. So if anyone has gone through with this, can you explain what you did, and how long it took?

I do know someone who transferred a case from Jerusalem to Amman, but there was nothing about a "resident visa" to Jordan required for them to process it. Actually, Amman was totally confused by the scenario and it took a while to get the process going - but I think this is because the situation doesn't come up very often and many consulate employees are just unprepared to answer questions about it.

I really don't see why a resident visa should be required, unless travel is very difficult between the applicant's country and the other consulate or embassy. I think it's worth asking a higher official at the other consulate for further clarification.
