Getting Started

Steps to Starting a Business


We have a one stop shop to facilitate registrations and licensing requirements for investors in our country


The concept of one stop shop (OSS) is to bring business and regulatory agencies together in a user friendly and efficient process for the issuance of investment certificates, licenses and permits as well as providing customer care services. This concept is being implemented to offer a sound and effective investment climate in south Sudan and thus positioning itself as the major investment location in Africa.


  • The OSS will operate a single point of contact for all business transactions in south Sudan. The investor will only have to be in contact with one single entity namely the OSS of the Ministry of investment to obtain all the necessary paperwork in a streamlined and coordinated process.
  • The OSS guides investors through a step by step procedure to successfully develop and implement their projects. It offers pre investment advice and counseling, processing of application for investment certificate, and relevant permit as well as ensuring aftercare services.
  • The creation of the one stop shop (OSS) under the Ministry of Investment will ensure that the investors operate in a prompt, reliable and customer care environment.
  • Middle rank officers form GoSS Ministries and Departments (Labour, Finance, Immigration, Legal affairs and Commerce) are based at the One Stop Shop (OSS). The officers should have the expertise to evaluate investment projects as well as conversant with all the procedures of his/her respective Ministries and Government Departments. The officers should have full power to take decision and have authority to sign documents on behalf of their respective Ministries.
