Addis Ababa October 13/2017 Ethiopia has introduced a system that allows foreign nationals acquire certificates for vital events.
The move comes as the vital events registration directive prepared for foreign nationals has come into effect, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Accordingly, foreign nationals residing in Ethiopia will be provided with certificates of marriage, birth, divorce, adoption and death.
The certificates are available in Addis Ababa city administration and regional states.
Ethiopia has launched a compulsory and universal registration and certification of vital events such as birth, death, marriage and divorce throughout the country in August 2016.
