Travelers visiting Sudan must get a Sudan visa in accordance with Sudan visa regulations. The Sudan visa policy stipulates that you must have a Sudan visa in order to enter, reside in, or exit the country.

If a tourist wishes to apply for a Sudan visa, certain information must be submitted in order for the visa to be completed. As a result, a visa application will be considered complete and will be reviewed and approved by officials if the following information is provided: the country from which the passport was applied for and issued, the length of time the traveler intends to stay in Sudan, and the reason for the traveler's visit.

The Sudan government introduced the Sudan visa, which is available to non-visa-exempt citizens from all around the globe. The implementation of this visa has made it simpler for tourists to explore Sudan for both tourism and commercial reasons, and a traveler in possession of a Sudan visa may remain in Sudan for up to 90 days per entry.

Travelers can easily apply for a visa online and receive it quickly. Once issued, the Sudan visa made required by the Sudan visa policy must be shown to immigration authorities when a passenger arrives at the port of entry into Sudan.

Sudan has negotiated agreements with over 150 nations that exclude these countries from visa requirements. Any traveler possessing a passport from one of the exempt nations is allowed to travel without the need to apply for a visa and have it granted before departure.

Sudan joined the Schengen Agreement for visa-free travel with 25 other European nations, which share the same Schengen Area visa policy, which permits tourists to visit all Schengen Area countries with only single visa. Holders of a Schengen visa are permitted to travel to 27 countries, including Sudan.

There is presently just one visa available for visitors to Sudan as part of the Sudan Visa policy for tourist reasons. Those who do not have a passport that qualifies for visa exemption under Sudan's visa policy must acquire authorization from the Sudan government before arriving at any port of entry and attempting to cross the border into the nation.
