Moussa will discuss progress made to the Comprehensive Peace Agreement with senior northern and southern officials.
The accord, struck in 2005, ended two decades of civil war.
Moussa's planned visit Khartoum and Juba, the northern and southern capitals, during the second week of December was delayed for procedural reasons.
