A quick update on the Sudanese visa situation for people heading north.
I have heard from several recent travellers that the wait in Addis is well over a month. I have just received my visa in Kampala, Uganda on an Aussie passport, after about a two week wait. Cost was 55,000 shillings (US$33) and the visa is valid for three months.
In order to speed up the process I used a travel agent in Khartoum to issue an invitation letter. He wanted US$75 for the privilege, but as yet hasn't actually asked to be paid.
