57. Are Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) involved in humanitarian or religious activities in Sudan still required to obtain an NGO registration number?


No. The general license at 31 C.F.R. § 538.540 authorizes all transactions prohibited under the Sudanese Sanctions Regulations, 31 C.F.R. part 538, effective January 17, 2017. As a result, NGOs are no longer required to obtain an NGO registration number to operate in or transact with Sudan.
