Consular Protection for EU citizens in South Sudan

Consular protection is the help an EU Member State can provide to its citizens in case they need assistance abroad. Typically, consular protection can include cases such as:

  • A need for emergency travel documents;
  • A serious accident or serious illness;
  • Relief and repatriation in case of an emergency;
  • Being a victim of crime;
  • Arrest or detention;
  • Death.

Germany, France, the Netherlands and Sweden are present in South Sudan. The other twenty-three EU Member States do not have a resident Embassy [/Consulate(s)] in South Sudan but are present in neighbouring countries. 

You are an EU citizen in need of consular protection in South Sudan?

You can contact your resident Embassy [/Consulate(s)]. If your EU Member State is not present in South Sudan, you can turn to one of the EU Member States present. 
Indeed, any EU citizen in a non-EU country where his/her own national State has no representation is entitled to protection by the diplomatic or consular authorities of any other EU country. EU citizens in such a situation are entitled to protection under the same conditions as the nationals of that other EU country.

Below is a list of contact information for EU Embassies/Consulates in South Sudan.

Note that the EU Delegation to South Sudan cannot provide direct consular assistance. The EU Delegation closely cooperates and coordinates with EU Member States, particularly in times of consular crises. 

As an EU citizen, you can contribute to making consular protection more effective. In particular, you are invited to consult and follow the travel advice and instructions on the website(s) your country’s Foreign Ministry and/or Embassy [/Consulate(s)] in South Sudan.
