Khartoum - Post Report Question and Answers

Are qualified veterinarians and/or good kennel services available? Do animals need to be quarantined upon entry to the country? Are there other considerations regarding pets that are particular to this country?

We do not have pets, but pets entered Sudan with no quarantine. There are vet services available, but I cannot speak to their quality. The only housing compound with large yards appropriate for dogs is the Presidential Villas. Be careful not to leave your dog outside unattended, as there are monkeys and other critters roaming the villas compound. - Feb 2018

No quarantine necessary. There are a few veterinarians, but folks have had mixed experiences. Try to keep your pet healthy. - May 2017

Soooo they are technically available. Let's just say hit or miss. That said, the prices definitely trump US prices. Animals don't have to be quarantined either to or from Khartoum. Monkeys are available for adoption at your own risk. - Nov 2016

There are a handful of good vets in Khartoum, but for serious non-emergency issues you can fly your pets to visit expert vets in Dubai or Nairobi. - Oct 2016

No, you can get your pet. There are a couple of vets that can do very limited things. Your best bet right now is Qatar Air to bring your pets in and take them out of the country. The risk is that if your pet is suddenly injured they may not have essential medicine and equipment to treat it. - Mar 2016

Quarantine: No. There are vets available here, but I cannot speak to their quality. - Jun 2015

There is one vet who's good. Pets don't have to be quarantined. You will have to get neighbors to take care of your pet. If you can, avoid bringing your pet since it's hard to ship it out, and with the travel and how long it takes it's very hard on both you and your pet. - Mar 2015

I don't have pets and I am glad. Getting them in and out is stressful to the pet because of the long trip and multiple stops. Kennels are not available; there are a couple good vets that even do house calls from what I hear. - Apr 2014

No. - Apr 2010
