You can check here, as Canadians, you pretty much need one for all countries in Africa. Just sent away for my Nigerian one to go visit at Christmas.

Sudan

Hi,

We are travelling from North to South and the only visa that we wanted to obtain back in Canada was the Sudanese visa. We had read that it can take 4 weeks to get the visa in Cairo so we decided to apply before we left Canada. We thought we had given them plenty of time submitting our application to the consulate in Ottawa at the beginning of June. We hadn´t received them by our departure on July 5. Due to an accident when taking bikes out of cargo at the airport in Munich (check out Audrey and Ekkes Home Page) we´ve been in Bavaria for the last 2.5 months and we still don´t have the visa! We´ve been told that they will forward them to Cairo but haven´t heard anything for a few weeks now. We´ll see how it goes when we get there!

Everything else from Jordan to South Africa should be possible to obtain in the country before. At least that is what we´re planning on!

The Sudanese visa can be got in one day in Cairo. It´ll cost you at lest a cool $US100, but as far as I know that´s the easiest way. You will also need a "Letter of Recommendation" from your embassy, or someones embassy. It seems the Sudanese embassy are happy with any kind official letterhead, even if it says that you are not a citizen of that country. With a Canadian passport you should be OK to get visas the country before, unless you have an Isreali visa stamp or even a Egyptian exit stamp from the one crossing they have with Isreal.
Good Luck!
