South Sudan adds 5th passport category for business community


Information was received from a source in Juba, South Sudan’s capital city, that the government was set to launch an additional category of passports, especially designated for the business community.

Presently South Sudan has four  categories of passports, diplomatic, official, special – a category remaining rather obscure and undefined as to the user group – and those for citizens, ordinary citizens that is.

One of the requirements of obtaining the new passport is membership at the South Sudan Chamber of Commerce, but other criteria, according to the source, are required too before this passport type can be issued.

Among them is a clean police record, a company registration at least three years old, bank statements covering the period, evidence of tax payments and a recommendation, likely from the Chamber of Commerce.
