Welcome to South Sudan!

The Republic of South Sudan has Juba as its bustling and chaotic capital.

The government has stopped the issuance of Visa on arrival at the airport to None Diplomats and those outside East African community member Countries. Starting this week, only Diplomats and East Africans will be issued Visa’s on arrival. The rest must obtain Visas from South Sudan embassies before flying in.

Country Profile

Under the terms of the deal with the Republic of Sudan, the new country has entire autonomy having won a resounding victory at the independence referendum but still faces ocean and crude oil access issues as well as internal ethnic unrest. The new country at least brings to an end Africa’s longest running civil war. Juba is buzzing with activity to generate the infrastructure of a new country and all the large world nations are creating embassies or consulates to take their place in the local diplomatic society. In addition, South Sudan have produced their own currency, passports and taken their place at the United Nations.

Worldwide Movers Africa (South Sudan) offers full origin and destination services for air and sea shipments. The preferred port of entry for Juba is Mombasa with the line-haul of ISOs done by road, an arduous trip that can take a week or more depending on the weather and performance of the customs department. Check with us before expediting any airfreight as weights and volumes are very limited depending on origin. However an increasing number of air carriers are now serving Juba including Fly Dubai and Etihad out of the United Arab Emirates.

Moving Pets

Many relocations to and from Africa include pets, dogs in particular. We move your pets safely and comfortably. We ensure that direct flights are used whenever possible and that the transit time is kept to a bare minimum. In most cases we construct the transit containers to IATA the specifications but you may use your own if it conforms. We encourage you to use the transit container well before the move so your pet can feel completely at home in it. Delivery of your pet to your new home is looked after by professionals, all of whom are members of the necessary international trade associations. It is the responsibility of the pet owner to comply with veterinary and quarantine requirements.

  • Pets are relocated safely and comfortably
  • Our personal touch ensures that the relocation is made as smooth as possible
  • Pets travel in IATA-approved travel containers
  • All airline and customs documentation is seen to, as is compliance with veterinary and quarantine requirements

Orientation Services

It’s not easy finding your way around in a new city if you don’t have the resources of a resident friend to show you the ropes. The aim of our City Orientation Tour is to show you where to find what you need and make your initial settling-in period a little easier. As well, you can use your own car if you like (or ours) to get you accustomed to driving in local city traffic.

The tour includes: favored expat residential areas, shopping centers, the central business district, schools, hospitals, embassies, specialty shops such as delicatessens, hardware stores, furnishing stores, liquor stores, opticians, major hotels, restaurants, entertainment spots, and points of cultural interest. In addition you will be shown sports and social clubs as well as spots to acquire a reliable vehicle. A Worldwide Movers Africa representative will collect you from your hotel or office where we will generate an orientation tour that suits your particular needs. The tour lasts approximately four hours and includes lunch. Please contact our office for more information.


Most African metropolises are considerably safer than some larger western cities. Common sense and some pertinent advice make life easier and more secure. Please call Worldwide Movers Africa who will be pleased to organize an Orientation Tour for you during which time you can discuss home security, car security, security companies and various methods to prevent theft.
