Attachment 3941From our experience, and that of everyone else we've met, said embassy is a little tricky to find, and its not at the address listed in guide books, so here's the right address, a google map and an attached GPX with its location.
21 Mohammed El Ghazali St
Off of Mossadak St
Matt & Kim
EDIT - GPX and google map now has British & Sudanese embassies as well.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but tomorrow is a major holiday in Egypt and the embassy will be closed, you cannot apply for the visa until you have your Sudanese one anyway. Once you have that get there for 9 am and you might get it the same day, if not the next. Bear in mind that the Arabic weeekend is Friday/Saturday not Sat/Sun as back home. I'll cost you 30 US$.
Chris you seem to have missed that excellent file from Ulrich
attached again here-
More embassies than you could visit in a month!
If you are going to use it as a custom poi file- there is more work to be done in excel.
The Process for Applying for a Sudan Visa in Cairo. For Brits anyway..
8th October 2010.
For Brits at least you need a LOI from the British Embassy just round the corner. It costs 275 Egyption Pounds (30quid ish) and takes about an hour.
Then, with the LOI and 2 passport photos head for the Sudan Embassy.
Fill in the Application form they give you. One of the questions is your Blood Group.
Then, get a photocopy of the Application form, your LOI, your passport photo page and a photocopy of your Egypt Visa from the chap in the corner with the photocopier. (This cost me 2 Egypt Pounds - 22pence ish)
Then head for the counter, they will take everything, stamp your paperwork and keep it. They'll give you your passport back and say come back in a week for your Visa.
No mention of money on Application day. I'll see what happens on Thursday when I go back! (A chap did say it was 100us dollars)
The Egyption Embassy definitely do not issue a visa until you have a Sudan one. I'm going to get mine in Khartoum.
I got visa of sudan quit easy. had to go to dutch embassy for a letter, they do that everyday. with this letter (got it in 1 minute for free) to embassy of sudan including 2 passfoto. filling some paper.2 days later i had to pay 100 dollar (no euro accepted), could collect visa after 1500 hour. gonna get visa for ethiopie in khartoem
