The security situation in Juba, and South Sudan, has deteriorated in the last week, with HSSJ/JUB becoming off limits due to fighting.
The ceasefire announced on 11 July is holding; Juba International Airport (HSSJ/JUB) is open to charter operations; however, commercial flights have yet to resume.
U.S. government aircraft evacuated personnel on 12 July – a security message issued by the embassy later in the day advised U.S. citizens to continue to shelter in place and not attempt to travel to the airport.
Meanwhile, other countries, such as Japan, Uganda, and Germany plan to send military aircraft to evacuate their nationals.
