Exporting to South Sudan

If you have plans to start exporting, take the time to do your research. Prepare your strategy carefully. You may also need export documents.

Starting to export

The Dutch government can help you take your first steps in a foreign market. You can find a lot of information on Ondernemersplein.nl, the digital one-stop shop for government information for businesses, and through the 'NL exporteert' app (in Dutch). The Chamber of Commerce (KvK) and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) can also answer your questions and advise you.

Information by country

RVO.nl can give you detailed information for the country you want to export to. For example, on local import tariffs and procedures. Choose the country in the list and click on export rules (in Dutch).

Choose the right export document

Exporting involves a lot of paperwork. There are different documents for exporting within and outside the European Union. Some papers must be shown to customs when goods pass the border. The Chamber of Commerce has the documents you need.

Exporting to this country or region

The security situation, particularly outside the capital city Juba, is highly unpredictable. The country is also in the grip of an economic crisis. Inflation is high and the value of the South Sudanese pound is steadily falling. A lucrative foreign exchange black market is making the economy even more unstable. So you need to expect financial volatility. All these circumstances make it difficult to do business in South Sudan. A travel warning also applies to the country. If you are nevertheless planning on doing business in South Sudan, please contact the Dutch embassy there at JBA@minbuza.nl.
