Sudan Travel Warning

Issued by US Department of State

Oct 05, 2001

Note: This Travel Warning was published by the State Department on October 9, 2001 with an October 5, 2001 effective date.

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all travel to Sudan. The United States has no permanent diplomatic presence in Sudan because of concerns regarding the government of Sudan's ability to ensure adequately the safety of U.S. officials. While U.S. officials elsewhere in the region make periodic visits to Sudan, their ability to provide consular services, including emergency assistance, is severely limited.

The security situation throughout Sudan is unstable. Sudan's ongoing civil war affects southern, eastern and western areas of the country. The government of Sudan's control over its police and soldiers may be limited. The events of September 11 in the United States and the presence of sectarian and militant groups in Sudan have raised the concern for the security of Americans there.

U.S. citizens in Sudan are urged to consider their personal security situations in determining whether to remain in the country. Those who remain in Sudan should keep a low profile, stay alert to changing developments, and avoid large crowds and other situations in which anti-American sentiments may be expressed.

In light of recent events in the United States, Americans traveling and residing abroad should monitor closely the Department's Internet web site at http://travel.state.gov, particularly the Department's Worldwide Caution, when considering travel abroad. For further general information regarding travel to Sudan, please consult the Department of State's latest Consular Information Sheet for Sudan, also available via the Department's Internet web site.

This supersedes the Travel Warning dated December 12, 2000 to update security information in light of the September 11 terrorist attack in the United States.
