    Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens: Khartoum (Sudan) Ordered Departure
    Political Violence


    9/15/2012
    The U.S. Embassy alerts U.S. citizens that on September 15, 2012, the Department of State ordered the departure of all dependents of U.S. direct hire personnel and all non-emergency U.S. government personnel from Sudan, following the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum. The airport in Khartoum is open and commercial service is available. The Embassy is closed for all Consular Services until further notice.

    U.S. citizens are reminded to exercise caution at all times and closely monitor local events through reliable local and international news sources. Because even peaceful demonstrations can turn confrontational and become violent, U.S. citizens are advised to avoid all public demonstrations and political rallies as well as areas around them. You should keep a low profile, vary your travel times and routes, exercise care while driving, and avoid areas where large crowds are gathering.

    U.S. citizens should not come to the U.S. Embassy for any reason. For U.S. citizen emergencies in Sudan, please call 0187-022000 (local). Press "0" or remain on the line.


    If you have a U.S. passport at the U.S. Embassy, please email ACSKhartoum@state.gov.

    All non-immigrant visa (NIV) and following to join asylee/refugee V92/93 appointments are currently suspended. For inquiries, please email NIVKhartoum@state.gov.
