Hi There,

 

I am a green card holder and my wife is a citizen. We are moving to USA from Dubai in March and my parents live with us in Dubai. They will move back to their home country once I move to USA. I  will be applying for their B1/B2 so they can visit my once a year. Could anyone please advise me if I need any documents or any information will be of help.

You can not apply for their tourist visas to the USA.  They apply and are accepted or denied based on the strength of their ties to their home country.  There is nothing you can provide that will increase their chances.  The strong ties can be ties to their country of residence but given you said that they will move back to their home country after you move to the USA makes their case very weak as it appears that they are in the UAE  because of you so no strong ties to Home country as they are there with you and no strong ties to UAE because they will leave UAE when you move to the USA.    Thus I expect a very high chance of Denial and would suggest that you prepare for that possibility

Thanks for the reply. They have documents to prove their residence in their home country.

I think the point is they will have to show strong ties to their home country that shows they do not intend to stay in the US permanently.  These ties include property ownership, work responsibilities, and things that show they need to return to their home country after their visit.  As to acceptance or denial of the B1/B2 application, there are many factors, but certainly the country they are from can play a role.  Like it or not, some countries are considered high fraud country due to past visa recipients overstaying their visa and essentially becoming an illegal immigrant (not all illegal immigrants come across the southern border).  As the @JE57 mentioned, you cannot apply for their B1/B2, they will need to go through that process themselves, but you can certainly help them with filling out the DS160 forms that they will each need to submit to start the process.

 

Good Luck!
