What to do if your South Sudanvisa is refused?
You have the opportunity to challenge this verdict. The embassy of the Member State that decided to refuse the visa distributes a standard document to notify the applicant of the decision to deny a South Sudan visa and the reasons for the refusal.
A typical processing period ranges from four to six weeks. Only after the approval of the visa application are passports necessary. As soon as the application has been approved, the Embassy will let the applicant know. After receiving permission from the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Khartoum, visas are given.
