Passport/Visa Note

Immigration laws are still being finalised for South Sudan and travellers are advised to confirm all requirements with official sources before travel. Most countries require visas and usually they can be obtained upon arrival for a fee ranging from USD 50 to USD 100. It is highly recommended that passports be valid for six months after intended departure from any destination, as authorities on the ground often apply different standards to those stated officially.

Note: Passport and visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. Travellers are advised to check their entry requirements with their embassy or consulate.
