Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office written question – answered on 27th April 2023.
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what steps her Department is taking to support British citizens in Sudan following violence and damage to airport infrastructure in April 2023.
The safety of all British nationals in Sudan is our priority. The FCDO is working 24/7 to support remaining nationals. The situation remains volatile and plans may change depending on the security situation. All eligible British nationals who plan to leave Sudan are encouraged to travel to the British Evacuation Centre as soon as possible. Flights leave from Wadi Saeedna airfield. We can only evacuate British passport holders and immediate family members (spouse/partner and children under 18 years old) with existing UK entry clearance. More than 536 people have now been evacuated from Sudan on 6 UK flights as of 9pm last night (26 April).
