Landscape of Pyramids Sudan

Unfortunately, there are no money transfer companies that send money to Sudan at the time of writing. Even if you have a loved one in Sudan who needs money, a money transfer to a sanctioned country is illegal in Australia.

Why can't I send money to Sudan?

Because of the humanitarian crisis and human rights violations in Sudan, the United Nations Security Council placed sanctions on Sudan. As part of the United Nations, Australia also follows these sanctions.

This means you can't send money or goods to anyone living there. If you send money to another country without sanctions against Sudan and then pass those funds onto a recipient in Sudan, you may face tough legal and financial consequences.

You can read more about the sanctions on Sudan on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's website.
