You must have created separate GALs based on some condition. In order to move the user from one GAL to another you need to set the properties on User A so that it matches the condition set for GAL A.

For example, if GAL A has members with department as "Accounts" then you need to set the department on User A to Accounts

Raj is correct. Each GAL is basically just a query string or filter. How it is built determines who becomes listed in it.

You can run this from EMS and it should show you how the GALs are configured.
Get-GlobalAddressList

Can you suggest further troubleshooting

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

 
Gareth GudgerCommented:
The user has some sort of attribute in his account that causes the account to be included in the EMEA GAL. Have you check the property of that account, plus custom attributes, against an EMEA account to see if they share any common attributes? Such as location setting, or, department, etc.

Have you checked with the users if their address book is updated? You can check the properties of user mailbox to find out if he is really listed in Europe GAL.

Get-Mailbox <username> | Select AddressListmembership

You can always check the filter for address list using the command

Get-GlobalAddressList EuropeGALname | Select Recipientfilter

If allowed and possible please post the filter here.
