The U.S. Embassy in Khartoum is no longer providing nonimmigrant or immigrant visa services in Sudan due to the current security situation, the Department of State (DOS) announced. On April 22, 2023, the U.S. Embassy suspended its operations, and DOS ordered the departure of U.S. direct-hire employees and their dependents due to the continued threat from armed conflict in Sudan.
All immigrant and diversity visa interviews are canceled until further notice. Inquiries about pending post-interview immigrant visa cases can be emailed to KhartoumIV@state.gov. DOS said that the email box will be unmonitored “until we can begin to resume normal or alternative operations,” however. The embassy also is “unable to conduct passport or document passback at this time.” Applicants for U.S. nonimmigrant visas may apply in any country in which they are physically present and where appointments are available.
