US dollars needed

Hello all,

I have to make a payment to an Ethiopian university and they want me to pay them in US dollars. I have no idea how to get US dollars here in Addis Ababa. Any ideas? I tried the bank at the Sheraton and the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia. No luck.

Why don't you make a international direct bank transfer from you US Dollar account ?

I know some tour guides in Addis who may sell you USD. Around 25 birr for 1 USD.

I may help u with zat.... if u want u can contact me. Just tell me how much u need.

To anyone looking to obtain US dollars.

I would be very careful about contacting someone who posts that they have access to dollars without any accompanying information. There is a potential for you to be scammed.
