Hei! I badly need help and advice. My case was assigned in Stockholm Consulate.

I'm currently staying in Norway until this year for a working visa that will expire until the 19th of December.I decided not to renew visa and go home in my homecountry,Manila.I bought plane ticket already and be flying back this 11th of the year.I've emailed the NVC through their email address regarding case transfer/change of consulate,but I've been rejected thrice.I've sent a copy of my birth Certificate,Marriage Cert,government id in the Philippines,copy of Passport,and my expiring residence permit attached in the mail.Hope you can help me with this one.Thank you so much

Here is the reply mail i always received everytime I requested for case transfer.

The National Visa Center (NVC) received your inquiry regarding the immigrant visa petition: STKxxxxxxxxxx .....

We are unable to reassign this case to a different U.S. Embassy/Consulate General without additional information. XXXXXXX XXXXX is eligible to process in one of the following countries:

XXXXXX's country of citizenship

XXXXX's country of residence (the address and proof of residency must be submitted.)

XXXXX's country of last residence if he or she is currently residing in the United States

The requested country either does not fall into one of the above categories or insufficient proof of eligibility has been furnished to enable processing in that country.

You may resubmit your request with proof of eligibility to the National Visa Center if you wish to process at the requested U.S. Embassy/Consulate General. Possible proof includes the following: a copy of a government issued document such as birth certificate, valid passport, valid work visa, identity card or landed immigrant card. Please submit the sufficient proof to NVCInquiry@state.gov or to the address below.
