VISA FOR SUDAN, VERY EASY TO GET IN ASWAN

VISA FOR SUDAN, VERY EASY TO GET IN ASWAN

I write this post thinking it may be useful for travelers heading to Sudan as very little information is found.

I’m currently solo cycling from Cairo to Cape Town. I didn’t have time at home to apply for all the visas, so I decided to apply for them on the way.

Here is the information to get the sudanese visa in Aswan, Egypt.
The information below is from february 2017 but it can change very quickly.

The consulate is located about 5km south of the city center of Aswan, passed the cementary and the stadium. Here I attached 2 pictures with the location. If you search on google map, you’ll probably find it, but there’s 2 places in Aswan for “consulate of Sudan”. The right one is the furthest.

You can’t see it from the main road and there’s no sign. But it’s next to a mosque, Radwan mosque (Rodwan or Rudwan is another spelling on the maps), if you can’t find it, just ask around, people usually know this mosque.

The consulate is closed on wednesday, friday and saturday. The rest of the week, it opens only in the morning, from 9h30 to 12h30.

You need: original Passport/2 Passport pictures/photocopy of your passport/photocopy of your egyptian visa/50 dollars in cash (they were planning to increase the price)
It’s not a bad idea to make an extra copy of your passport to keep it while you leave your original passport at the consulate.

Once there, you fill in a form with your personal details at the office near the entrance. Then you bring this form at the office on the 1st floor and they will introduce all the information in the computer and you pay at the 2nd floor. The process of the visa, which is just a sticker on your passport, will take about one week, or less, 5-6 days. I left my passport on thursday and got it back the next tuesday. It seems a long time when you see the employees look bored… But you have to be patient, there’s worst places to wait for a few days!
