  • Degree Certificates.
  • Certificate of Registration with the Medical Council or Board of the country of origin.
  • A letter of good standing from the Medical Council or Board in the country of origin to ensure that there are no unspent criminal offences or pending disciplinary procedures that may deter the applicant from working in South Sudan.
