Sudan Travel Warning

Issued by US Department of State

Mar 27, 2003

This Travel Warning is being issued to remind Americans of continued concerns about the security situation in Sudan. This supersedes the Travel Warning of July 9, 2002.

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all travel to Sudan. In addition to the ongoing civil war that affects both southern and eastern Sudan, there is also fighting in Darfur province around the Jebel Mara area.

Sporadic fighting has continued between Sudanese government forces, the Sudan Peoples' Liberation Army (SPLA), and various militias in the southern part of the country. Threats have been made against foreigners working in the oil industry in Upper Nile province. The areas around Kassala and southern Blue Nile province remain affected by the civil war. The ceasefire in the Nuba Mountains has generally been respected. At least one American relief worker has been beaten and falsely accused of espionage. Other Americans have been held hostage. Travel into opposition-held areas of Sudan requires a specific travel permit from the SPLA or other rebel movements controlling the territory.

There have been demonstrations in Khartoum against United States foreign policy. In some instances, demonstrators have thrown rocks at the U.S. Embassy and Westerners. Americans should avoid large crowds and demonstrations.

There are no consular officers resident in Sudan. Although a U.S. consular officer makes periodic visits to Sudan, the officer's ability to provide consular services, including emergency assistance, is severely limited. Information describing when the consular officer will be in Sudan, as well as the services available for Americans, can be found on the web site of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo: http://www.usembassy.egnet.net/sudan.htm.

U.S. citizens who remain in or travel to Sudan despite this warning are encouraged to register with the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum and to obtain updated information on travel and security in Sudan. The Embassy is located at Sharia Ali Abdul Latif, Khartoum. The mailing address is P.O. Box 699, Khartoum. The telephone number is (249)11-774-701 (011-774-701 inside Sudan); fax (249)11-774-137 (011-774-137 inside Sudan). The U.S. consular officer can also be contacted by email at: and When not in Sudan, the U.S. consular officer can be reached at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, telephone number (20)2-797-2098. The workweek in Khartoum and Cairo is Sunday through Thursday.

Further information on Sudan may be found in the Department of State's Consular Information Sheet for Sudan, the East Africa Public Announcement, and the Worldwide Caution Public Announcement, all on the Internet at http://travel.state.gov. Updates to security conditions may be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States, and 317-472-2328 from overseas.
