US renews Travel Advisory continuing to advise to reconsider travel to Sudan, not travel to Darfur region

WASHINGTON, The US Department of State renewed Thursday its Travel Advisory for Sudan that remains at Level Three, continuing to advise travels to “reconsider travel to Sudan.” The new Travel Advisory advised to “reconsider travel to Sudan due to terrorism and civil unrest,” and that “some areas have increased risk.” This Travel Advisory replaces the previous Travel Advisory issued in July 2018.

It also stressed to “not travel to the Darfur region, Blue Nile state, and South Kordofan state due to crime and armed conflict,” which are at Level Four “Do Not Travel.” It noted that “tensions remain high between the Government of the Republic of the Sudan and opposition forces and violence continues along the border between Chad and Sudan and areas that border South Sudan (including the disputed Abyei area).”
