Sudan: temporary special hardship classifications of “E” to all duty stations in Sudan that are not currently classified as “E” (currently Khartoum, Damazine and Port Sudan) is extended from 1 June until 30 June 2023. The extension of the temporary special hardship classification measure is only applicable to internationally recruited staff who have not been evacuated from the applicable duty stations, i.e., those who are required to continue to live and work in these duty stations.
Special Hardship Classifications (2/3)
Sudan (contd.) : This is a temporary special classification in respect of the situation in those duty stations and is therefore intended only for staff members that continue to live and work in those conditions during the crisis period.
A re-evaluation of these temporary special measures will be done, as necessary, during the quarterly cycle established for review of all duty stations under temporary special measures.
