COVID-19 Information

The government of the Republic of South Sudan has implemented enhanced screening and quarantine measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Travelers should be prepared for travel restrictions to be put into effect with little or no advance notice. U.S. citizens who are considering returning to the United States should utilize the intermittent commercial flights currently available. The government of South Sudan requires a “COVID Free Certificate” produced by a healthcare practitioner which is dated within three days of travel in order to enter South Sudan.  In practice, procedures for admission are ad hoc and travelers may be barred entry for little or no reason.
