Situation in Sudan: Information for U.S. Citizens in Sudan

Situation in Sudan – April 23, 2023 – Information for U.S. Citizens in Sudan

U.S. citizens in Sudan – On April 22, 2023, the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum suspended its operations (to include visa, passport and other routine consular services) until further notice.

To inform U.S. citizens of options to leave Sudan as security conditions permit, we need to know your information. If you are a U.S. citizen in Sudan, please fill out the following crisis intake form. (There is no need to submit this information again if you have already submitted information concerning yourself or a U.S. citizen family member to U.S. Embassy Khartoum). U.S. citizens seeking to depart Sudan can also call 1-833-741-2777 (in the United States) or 1-606-260-4379 (from overseas) for immediate assistance.

We encourage U.S. citizens to enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates and makes it easier for the U.S. Embassy to contact you in an emergency.

Actions to take:

  • Attempt to stay at the lower levels of your location, stay away from windows and exercise caution.
  • Monitor local media for updates.
  • Review Department of State’s Travel Advisory for Sudan and the most recent  Security Alerts.
