Resumption of Work at the Karary Local Passport Complex in the Sudanese Capital

Sudanese police announced the resumption of work at the Karary local passport complex, northwest of the capital Khartoum.

The ongoing war between the army and the RSF has brought passports and other identity papers to a standstill in the Sudanese capital.

On Saturday, Karary local police chief Maj. Gen. Dafallah Taha inaugurated the resumption of work at the passport services complex in the locality for citizens of Khartoum state according to a capacity that covers service applicants.

Taha confirmed in a statement to the police press office that the locality is fully prepared to receive large numbers of service seekers.

He commended the efforts of the Ministry of Interior, the Presidency of the Police Forces, the General Directorate of Passports and Immigration and the General Directorate of Registry to resume the work of passports and civil registry.

The work of the Karary complex includes the issuance of passports, birth certificates and civil registry procedures.

In late August, the Sudanese Ministry of Interior announced the start of the procedures for applying for the electronic passport in Port Sudan, the capital of the Red Sea state, as well as in a number of other states.

The issuance of passports in Sudan has been suspended since the outbreak of war between the Sudanese army and the Rapid Support Forces on April 15.

The stoppage of the factory in Khartoum caused many Sudanese to be stuck inside, although the Sudanese authorities resorted to issuing emergency travel documents that were not approved by many countries.
