National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Reconsider travel to Sudan due to crime, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, and armed conflict.   Country Summary: Crime, such as kidnapping, armed robbery, home invasion, and carjacking can occur. This type of crime is more frequent outside of Khartoum. Members of known terrorist groups continue to be in Sudan and could pose a threat. Terrorist groups in Sudan may harm Westerners and Western interests through suicide operations, bombings, shootings, and kidnappings. They may attack with little or no warning, targeting foreign and local government facilities, and areas frequented by Westerners.    Demonstrations can occur with no warning. Recent demonstrations in Khartoum have been planned and peaceful with no police response.  However, police and other security forces may respond to public demonstrations with violence. Foreigners could be targeted in reaction to national and international events.   Violence continues along the border between Chad and Sudan and areas that border South Sudan (including the disputed Abyei area). Armed opposition groups are active in Central Darfur state and parts of Blue Nile and South Kordofan states. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Sudan, as U.S. government employees must obtain special authorization from the Sudanese government to travel outside of Khartoum. The U.S. Embassy requires U.S. government personnel in Sudan to use armored vehicles for official travel.   Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.
