It was pretty much as expected
Went to the Australian embassy on the Nile corniche and got my letter of introduction.
They got me to sign a statutory deceleration because of the travel advisory. The cost of the letter was around $50us payable in egp. You may be able to save on this if you do not do the stat deceleration as half the fee was for witnessing the signature. Maybe you could say that the letter is for another purpose (it was addressed to whom it may concern and not the Sudan embassy)
I then went to garden city to find the embassy has now moved
It is now in the doqqi area. It is down a small street off el doqqi road in a very residential area. I will post the exact address when I get someone to translate it from Arabic.
Once there it was easy
Copy of Egypt, Ethiopian visas and photo page of passport
Copy of form an original
Copied can be made at embassy and I think photos too.
Will be ready to pick up tommorow

Can you get the application form online? What visa did you get? 1 month tourist visa or a transit visa? Does the visa start from date of issue (when they give it to you) or from when you enter the country? How long do you have to enter the country - or is it a fixed date visa.
Sorry for all the questions. I'm kicking it in Cairo now too and the Chad embassy has told me they will not give me a visa unless I have my Sudanese visa first...so I'll head there on sunday.
Please do post the address!

this is where the Sudanese Embassy in Cairo is located: http://goo.gl/maps/h1hKq.
We applied for a Ethiopian visa yesterday and could pick it up today around 3 pm (the embassy is located here: http://goo.gl/maps/4mUwc). It cost us $20, seeing that we bought 1 month for transit purposes only. After the pick up today, we went to the Sudanese embassy, but they told us to come back tomorrow between 9 and 1 in the morning to apply for our visas. They also mentioned it will cost $100 per visa, which we thought was a hell of a lot of money.. but i'm guessing it's right?
We've also heard that it's easier and cheaper to get your visa in Aswan ($50 and not such a hassle), but has anyone done it this way in the past weeks?

7yep this is the address for the sudan visa:
8 el Sherbiny St. Dokki.
Get off the Dokki metro stop and ask for the Semsema restaurant, you turn right just before the restaurant and its about 150m up on the right.
I've heard its cheaper in Aswan too - but I am getting my Chad visa in Cairo (insha'allah getting it tomorrow) so that is why I applied for Sudan here. I had budgeted for 100usd and hey, it was 100usd.
stoked that the Chad visa was only 50USD. had budgeted 100USD for that too.
