    Hi fikerwa

    Your case number should be current any time from March to may 2018, police certificate is obtained from forensic police department behind immigration it only takes 2 days to process and you will need your 2nd NL ( which is your appointment letter that you will receive a 2 months before interview date)

    Good luck!

    Hey ayub,

    Glad you found this forum.

    1. You only need police certificate from "countries "you live since you turn 16, if you were still in Ethiopia you only need one police certificate.

    2. Go to your *kifleketema* and ask for a new birth certificate, they have a pre-printed version of it, it will have all the necessary information. Make sure you authenticate it after you get one.

    thank you for your instant reply

    ethiopian embassy post says "each visa applicant aged 16 years or over is required to submit a police certificate from the police authorities of each locality of the country of the applicant's nationality or current residence ..... ... six months since attaining the age of 16". so do you mean it is not necessary to get police certificate from all localities of my previous residence?

    thank you very much

    I think 330$ visa fee
    165$ social security number fee, you can hold it till you arrived to US.
    Then the medical check I don't know how much it will cost u.
    Last thing the air tickets fee.
    This is what i know.

    The SSN is free. The $165 fee is for the plastic GC. And this will actually change to $220 effective Dec. 23rd, 2016.
