    Hi Kid123, Congratulations!

    What certificates are we talking about? ESLCE or first degree or some other diploma certificates? how come it is not possible to get it on time before your interview?
    Of course you will be asked to present all the documents you said you have. November is tomorrow so you better try to get it. What about your other documents like birth certificate, police clearance (ASHARA), passport, etc... do you have all?

    Please you should hurry!

      To All fellow Ethiopian DV winners.
      There were two Ethiopians forums on DV 2010 and DV 2011 here and I created DV 2012 threads too, but unfortunately the threads have gone from their database. If you have time try to get those threads, there are a lot of information and interview experience at US Embassy Addis Ababa, mine was on "DV 2011 winners from Ethiopia meet here". Too bad that I don't have time to check this forum regularly but if u have any questions that I can answer just private message me. Good Luck to yo all.

          Dear fikalab, we really appreciate! thank you man. I will be sending you private messages about some questions. I have been really feeling lonely here, to ask questions about Ethiopian related stuffs, i thank the Kenyan forumites who were so helpful.

          Hope you are enjoying.

              Glad to see you posted on this thread. Other Ethipians will be more helpful to you than I could be. However one thing that did occur to me is that you may not have seen this information regarding which documents are considered "available" in Ethiopia. http://www.travel.state.gov/visa/fee....html?cid=9170

                  Perhaps you could explain more specifically what is your concern.

                    Dear natna,

                    Bellow is "How to" regarding educational documents authentication as per your request. It was shared by fikalab last year. Go through it and if there is any question let us know.

                    Ethiopian Academic Documents Authentication Procedures

                    High School Transcript Authentication
                    First one needs to authenticate the transcript from grade 9-12 at the school where u attended your high school level and then bring the school authenticated transcript to the regional education bureau for final authentication. (This step is not necessary according to this years interviewed winners. If you can do it but if you can't don't bother.)

                    High School National Exam Certificates Authentication
                    First one needs to authenticate the National Exam Certificates at the Ministry of Education and then take the authenticated Certificate to Mistry of Foreign Affairs for final Authentication

                    Higher Level Institutes Certificate and Grade Report Authentication
                    First one needs to go to the university/college to authenticate the higher level Certificate but for the new curriculum graduates most of the Universities request the receipt of payment for cost sharing in order to authenticate.Once u authenticate the certificate and the grade report as well from your Instititute then go to MoFA for final Authentication.

                    High School (Preparatory School)
                    Place: The Place where u attended your Secondary and/or Preparatory Courses

                          Does late reply matter (is it first in first out or by case number)

                          Dear All am a winner of DV 2014 and my case number is around 2500 but i did not see any notification letter since then. i replied to KCC at the end of August ? do you think that my late reply to KCC matters for the delay of the second notification letter? as you know the cut off is reached 11,000. thanx

                                  Hi Hinicho!

                                  Congratulations and welcome to this quite forum.

                                  I am still waiting for the interview experience of our guys who went for it since October but no one showed up yet.
                                  It seems you will have your interview after me and for sure you will read one experience (mine).

                                  Anyways please be around and participate. Whatever question you have post it here.

                                  Welcome again!

                                          Congratulations!

                                          I have a couple of questions:

                                          1. How do you authenticate documents from the Ministries of Education and Foreign Affairs? I had my ESLCE reissued a couple of months ago because I lost the original, and I thought that was enough. Does it need to be authenticated by both ministries??
                                          2. My high school does not issue a one-page transcript (I went to Lycee) so what do I do? In fact, I don't think the Education Bureau or other such government offices have anything to do with it.
                                          Is that really necessary considering I went on all the way to my Master's?

                                          Other than that, I would appreciate if you could share the questions you were asked at the interview.
