While South Sudan just recently gained its independence from Sudan, the laws and penalties under the penal code seem to follow Sudan pretty closely when it comes to homosexuality. Labeled specifically as sodomy, it is banned in the country and punishable by law. Those who break the law can face up to ten years in prison. However, it goes even further than jail time. Visas can be denied to those who are believed to be entering the country for the purpose of homosexuality or lesbianism. Those in South Sudan who violate the law may also face a fine, while in Sudan you could even be killed.
