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.
