Hello! Does anyone have any experience obtaining a copy of a marriage certificate from the Kenya embassy via the Los Angeles consulate? My british-by-descent application rides on this marriage certificate being produced.

I applied in February and at the end of June they told me that Kenya received my request in March. They said it takes a "long time" and cannot give me an estimate when it will be sent over. I've paid for it and my life is on hold. I realize that they do things differently in Kenya so while I bide my time I'd like to know if anyone else had similar difficulties and how long it took to finally get what you were after. Thank you.

Not surprising.... there have been some posts regarding obtaining documentation from African states.

In my own case when applying for work visa for US, I had to obtain Police Certificate from South Africa. Waited a couple of months and it was only with the intervention of a colleague who was in South Africa and had some clout with the local police chief and who actually went to Pretoria personally, that we obtained the certificate without further delay.
