Congratulations and welcome to Sudan!

Sudan, once the largest and one of the most geographically diverse states in Africa, split into two countries in July 2011 after the people of the south voted for independence.

Country Profile

The government of Sudan gave its blessing for an independent South Sudan, where the mainly Christian and Animist people had for decades been struggling against rule by the Arab Muslim in the north.

However, various outstanding issues – especially the question of shared oil revenues and border demarcation – have continued to create tensions between the two successor states. Sudan has long been beset by conflict. Two rounds of north-south civil war cost the lives of 1.5 million people, and a continuing conflict in the western region of Darfur has driven two million people from their homes and killed more than 200,000.

Nevertheless, Sudan’s economic growth is impressive. The major cities of Khartoum (between 6 and 10 million inhabitants) and Port Sudan are growing steadily and the more moderate stance of the government is making external investment a slightly more attractive activity. Khartoum is not the world’s favorite destination for expatriates but it still draws many diplomatic, United Nations and the private sector hires from overseas.

Housing in Khartoum is plentiful and reasonably priced from say, London or Paris, but the quality of builds is poor and it takes time to find well-constructed and finished accommodation. Out-of-home entertainment is very limited as are good restaurants and remember that a glass of wine is “haram” (forbidden).

Worldwide Movers Africa (Sudan) was founded in 2016 and offers full origin and destination services for international moves. It’s staff are Worldwide Movers Africa’s “gold standard” graduates and with Ronald Mutesasira’s 25 years of moving experience, his directorship is well merited.

Customs Regulations

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

t’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.

Safety

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.
