Case Transfer Request

From Manila to another Embassy/Consulate

If you wish to have your immigrant/fiancé(e) visa file transferred from Manila to another U.S. Embassy/Consulate, we will need to receive a formal request from the Embassy/Consulate in the country where you wish to apply. Upon receipt of this request, we will immediately forward the file for their processing. You should send a written request to the Embassy/Consulate where you wish to apply, explaining the reason for the transfer. It is also a good idea to include evidence of your legal permission to remain in the country where you wish to process the immigrant/ fiancé(e)  visa.

From another Embassy/Consulate to Manila

If you wish to have your immigrant/fiancé(e) visa file transferred to Manila, you must submit a written request outlining the reason for the transfer. We will also need to see evidence of your ability to remain in the Philippines during the duration of the visa process (Philippines passport, ID card, or work permit). Email your request and supporting documentation to the Consular Communications Group (Immigrant Visa) at IVManilaReplies@state.gov. If we approve the transfer, we will contact the Embassy/Consulate that is currently maintaining your file to arrange for the transfer to Manila.
