Welcome to the Republic of Sudan Embassy website.
It gives me much pleasure and honor to welcome you to the new website of the Embassy of the Republic of the Sudan in Washington DC, United States of America. This page is dedicated to you as the Embassy is your gateway to the Republic of Sudan and the new website is a symbol of a renewed spirit of our beloved country.
This newly designed website is meant to provide appropriate economic information as well as political developments, data and basic facts about Sudan. The website includes the work of the Embassy regarding visa, consular works, cultural events and the climate of investment to attract foreign investors to Sudan.
We hope the information would be useful to strengthen, promote and enhance the mutual interests and the friendly bilateral relations between the Republic of the Sudan and the United States of America and their people.
We are looking forward to receiving your opinions and suggestions. If you have any regarding this website and Sudan, please feel free to send us your feedback by completing this form.
