Currency, Foreign Exchange & Money Advice

The currency used in South Sudan is Sudanese pounds (SDG). The current exchange rates for Sudanese pounds are $1 = 0, €1 = 6.82, £1 = 8.

Foreign Currency - Cash
While ATMs have become commonplace throughout the world in recent years, it's not always wise to rely on them while travelling. In remote places and developing countries, they may be unavailable or incompatible with your bank card. Purchasing cash before you travel also allows to you avoid costly ATM bank fees and commission, which can add up to a considerable outlay on your trip. Although it's not possible to buy Sudanese pounds in the UK, you may want to avoid this expense and inconvenience by bringing US dollars or euros with you to exchange on arrival.

  • Travelex offer guaranteed best exchange rates in the UK, with zero commission (minimum £100 order).
  • These exchange rates are of vastly better value than those available at airports before departure.
  • Your currency can be collected with free pickup at a wide range of Travelex shops in airports, ports and city centres.

Foreign Currency - Cards
For extra convenience and security, prepaid travel cards are ideal.

  • You can pre-load your card with your currency of choice and the amount you want, which can be easily topped up.
  • They can be used at any Mastercard-enabled ATM or shop, with no fee for standard usage.
  • With chip and pin technology (and no link to your own bank account), they offer complete security.
  • We recommend prepaid cards from Travelex.
