    Travel, Currency and Money saving tips for Sudan

    Travel money for Sudan

    As mentioned above, the Sudanese pound is a closed currency. Which means that you may find it difficult (or be permitted) to purchase the currency (SDG) before departure and will need to buy it upon arrival in Sudan.

    For these types of destinations, using a pre-paid travel card is a good solution. As no travel cards support loading closed currencies like the SDG you will incur currency conversion or foreign transaction fees if you use a travel money card in Sudan.

    However, using a pre-paid travel card is still a good idea as you can avoid ATM fees and also you can avoid using (and losing!) your main bank or debit/credit card.


    Send Money to Sudan - Best Rates

    To get a good (and fair) exchange rate when sending money to Sudan you need to find and compare exchange rates for International Money Transfers (IMTs).

    The available FX rates for sending money abroad can be very different to the mid-market (wholesale) rate which you see reported online and in the News.

    You should especially compare your own bank's exchange rates to those available from Money Transfer specialists to see how much you can save - we make that calculation easy in the below table.

    Get a better deal for foreign transfers to Sudan

    When sending money to Sudan it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 4 simple steps :

    1. Open an account with a BER reviewed FX provider (id docs may be required)
    2. You specify the local or Sudanese pound amount you want to transfer
    3. Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
    4. Once your funds are received by the provider the converted SDG amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in Sudan.

    Use the above Send to Sudanese pound calculator to compare the exchange rates of FX specialist providers rates versus your bank's standard rates you can hopefully save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more Sudanese pound deposited into the recipient bank account and less margins and fees kept by the banks!
