Consular Updates

    Discontinuation of Adding Visa Pages Service January 1, 2016
    The U.S. Embassy in Khartoum informs U.S. citizens that as of January 1, 2016 the consular service for adding visa pages to U.S. passports will be discontinued. Visa page inserts pose vulnerabilities to passport security by diminishing the effect of the radio frequency blocking material to prevent unauthorized reading of e-Passports. The determination to eliminate the visa page insert service was made to enhance the security of the passport and to abide by international passport standards.

    As of October 2014, 52-page passport books have been issued to all applicants applying at overseas posts. This policy aims to lessen the burden that may be placed on frequent travelers who need more pages and those customers who may need to update residence permits or foreign entry/exit visas to comply with foreign country immigration practices.

    Please renew your passport early to ensure you have sufficient validity and blank pages remaining for travel. Many countries, including Sudan, will not allow entry on a passport with less than six months' validity remaining. Some countries also require two blank pages for visa entry and exit.
