Requirements for Entry:
World Health Organization (WHO) card with yellow fever/cholera vaccination when arriving from a yellow fever/cholera infected area
Visas: Obtain your visa before traveling. Visit the Embassy of Sudan website for the most current visa information. Overseas inquiries should be made at the nearest Sudanese Embassy or Consulate.
The Government of Sudan requires U.S. citizens to present a passport with at least 6 months validity, and an entry visa or entry permit upon arrival at any port of entry in Sudan. You must register at the Aliens Department at the Ministry of Interior within three days of your arrival or risk being fined. U.S. citizen travelers must obtain an entry visa from a Sudanese embassy before arriving in Sudan. There are two exceptions to this requirement: U.S. citizens possessing a Sudanese national identification document (such as a Sudanese passport or national identification card), and travelers with a sponsor (a business or organization) that has obtained an entry permit for them in advance from the Sudanese Ministry of Interior, may apply for an entry visa at Khartoum International Airport.
Previous travel to Israel: If your passport has an Israeli visa or Israeli entry/exit stamps, you will be banned entry.
Exit Visas: You must obtain an exit visa at the Aliens Department before departing the country and pay any airport departure tax not included in your airline ticket.
Women and Children: Women and their children, regardless of their nationality, must have the father’s consent to enter and exit Sudan – despite the custodial rights granted to the mother by any Sudanese, U.S., or other court. Husbands often use this law to prevent their wives and children from returning to the United States. Contact the Sudanese Embassy for more information.
HIV/AIDS restrictions: Some HIV/AIDS entry restrictions exist for visitors and foreign residents of Sudan. Sudanese law requires a negative HIV test result in order to obtain a work or residence visa.
