    actually your case number can not be current for October, as base line 2016 dv visa builtin your case will be current around may/June so you will have time for preparation
    regarding authentication, all educational certificates should be authenticated first from school/university then second Foreign affairs but this is not the time to worry for it better to fill first the 260 ds form correctly.

    Hello Every one!
    I am one of the DV2017 selectees and I live abroad for a study. Does any one has information if it is possible to get police certificates from Ethiopia through a delegate ?
    Thank you!

    Hello dears, very helpful forum indeed.
    My issue is there is a slight spelling difference of my last name on my academic certificates(two letters actually); every other document is perfect. i already submitted my DS260.
    My questions are...
    1. Will this be an issue at the time of the interview?
    2. Or can i use the "OTHER NAMES USED" field to mention the name as it appears on the academic certificates?

    Waiting for your prompt reply.

    if grade 10 and 12 national exam certificates are okay, you can ask your college/university a certificate of your diploma /degree with the right name

    the name is the same on all the three certificates, Grade 10 and 12 also on the degree certificate. and the last name on this academic certificates differ on 2 letters from My Birth certificate, Passport, EDV & DS260.

    hello ciciro how you been...

    i suggest you to ask the campus you attended for a replacement of your name as it appears on your passport/ds&the birth cirtificate..

    and about the grade 10&12 examinations i think i've seen some other girl's experience on the 2015 thread, i guess. she had the same issue and she went to ministry of examination to request a name change but it is not that easy to do that there unlike high schools/universities. so what she was told after explaining her case was that a committee will be formed to determine the matter...

    the G-10 &12 certificates are indeed very important as that is the educational requirement but the most specifically crucial thing is that your name on passport, birth certificate and ds/edv has to match perfectly..
    said that i think u should go to the national organization for examination and make a request..

    you should state every institution you attended since highschool ( grade 9--university in your case)

    so unlock it and add the institution you missed...

    5 hours only and you're already impatient? :rolleyes:. It's going to take days, it's not like there's a dedicated person monitoring email messages requesting for the DS260 form unlock.
