Message from the Ambassador

On behalf of all of my colleagues at the Embassy of Canada in Khartoum, I would like to welcome you to our website.  I am honored to be representing Canada in Sudan, Chad and Eritrea, countries rich in culture and traditions that have a lot to offer to visitors.

I hope our website will prove useful in providing information on Canada’s relations  with the three countries and as a useful starting point in learning more about the services we offer.

I strongly encourage Canadians resident, working or visiting any of our countries of accreditation to take a moment to register online using the Registration of Canadians Abroad (ROCA) webpage, or by coming to our Embassy, or any of our consulates in Chad and Eritrea so we can have your coordinates should we need to contact you in the case of an emergency.

I look forward to working with Canadians and citizens from Sudan, Chad and Eritrea  alike to further our bilateral relationship.

Warm regards,

Salah-Eddine Bendaoud
