        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.
        Dear Tew,

        Yes you have to authenticate your ESLCE certificate in both offices. It is very easy! It will take you only one at most two days to finish the authentications. Read my previous post on page 1 about the step by step procedures.

        As for your second question, yest it is a must to have your high school transcript according to previous year winners testimonies. Its really hard to tell you what to do since your school (Lycee) won't give it, calling and asking the embassy will be the best option. Pls call them at this number 011 130 6000. let us know if you get any response.

                    hello Tew, the authentication of your documents is very easy you just have to go to National Educational Assessment and Examination Agency located near AMIST KILO. and the ministry of foreign affairs is located @ KAZANCHIS near TOTAL. as for your second question Ormania has answered it well.
                    here are some of the questions i was asked
                    1. how many years did it take you to finish high school
                    2. where did you finish high school
                    3. what was my highest score in my ESCLE exam
                    4. what i studied after high school and where
                    5. he asked me about my current job

                        Same-sex spouses of U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs), along with their minor children, are now eligible for the same immigration benefits as opposite-sex spouses. Consular officers at U.S. embassies and consulates will adjudicate their immigrant visa applications upon receipt of an approved I-130 or I-140 petition from USCIS. Diversity Visa applicants may include same-sex spouses in their initial entries or add spouses acquired after their initial registration. Spouses of DV 2014 applicants, even those not included in the initial entry, must apply before September 30, 2014.

                                          Registering for DHL Courier Service

                                          As of October 1, 2013, all immigrant visa applicants are required to go on-line and register for courier service provided by DHL prior to their visa interview by visiting the following website: http://usvisa-info.com/. All immigrant visa applicants must bring a printed copy of the “register for courier confirmation page” to the consular interview as evidence they have taken this mandatory step.

                                          During the registration process, the applicant will choose one of two DHL locations in Addis Ababa as the pick-up location for any issued visa. Completing this on-line registration process is the only way for an applicant to obtain his/her issued visa. Applicants who do not register prior to their interview will experience delays in obtaining their issued visa.
