18 Dec 2013

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is advising against all travel to South Sudan due to politcal unrest and fighting in parts of the country. British nationals are strongly advised to leave South Sudan if they can do so safely. Some staff at the British Embassy in Juba are leaving temporarily.

British nationals wishing to leave Juba should contact the FCO as soon as possible on +44 207 008 1500 or by email at crisis@fco.gsi.gov.uk.

Before considering any travel to South Sudan travellers should read the FCO travel advice carefully, keep up to date with the latest security situation and subscribe to FCO e-mail alerts of the South Sudan travel advice page.
