Safety and Security

Do not travel.

South Sudan has temporarily suspended flights between South Sudan and countries affected by COVID-19. South Sudan is also considering denying new visas, revoking existing visas and denying entry to travellers from countries affected by COVID-19, including Australia. If you travel to South Sudan despite our advice, you will be screened for novel coronavirus (COVID-19) at Juba International Airport and some land entry points. You may be quarantined in a public hospital and not able to leave the country. We haven't changed our level of advice: Do not travel to South Sudan, including Juba, due to instability and ongoing conflict.
