Chad Travel Warnings

Issued by U.S. Department of State

Jun 16, 2008

This Travel Warning is being updated to reflect the resumption of rebel activity in Chad and to inform American citizens that the U.S. Embassy in N'Djamena temporarily relocated some personnel to Cameroon on June 16.  The Department of State urges American citizens to defer travel to Chad and that American citizens in Chad consider departing.  This supersedes the Travel Warning for Chad dated April 30, 2008. 

American citizens should defer all travel to Chad due to the unstable security situation throughout the country.  Rebel groups resumed activity in eastern Chad in mid-June and may attempt a renewed assault on the capital city of N'Djamena.  On June 16, the U.S. Embassy in N'Djamena temporarily relocated non-emergency personnel and dependents to Cameroon.  American citizens in Chad should consider departing at this time.  Commercial flights continue to operate from N'Djamena International Airport, but flights are subject to cancellation if rebel activity intensifies.  The security situation remains fluid and potentially dangerous. 

Limited American citizen services are available at the Embassy, but visa services are suspended until further notice - see contact information below.

U.S. citizens in Chad, particularly those outside N'Djamena, should be aware that the U.S. Embassy cannot guarantee that the same options and level of evacuation assistance that existed in February 2008 will be available should the situation again deteriorate.  The Embassy strongly recommends that U.S. citizens be prepared to implement their personal evacuation or safe haven plans.

The State Department advises American citizens not affiliated with humanitarian relief efforts to avoid travel to eastern Chad and the Chad/Central African Republic border area due to insecurity caused by banditry and clashes between Government and rebel forces.  The U.S. Embassy is not able to support evacuation from eastern Chad.  All Americans affiliated with humanitarian relief efforts in eastern Chad must have an evacuation plan developed with the UN which has aircraft and other logistical support.  Americans in Chad should closely monitor news media and the U.S. Embassy's website at http://ndjamena.usembassy.gov. 

U.S. citizens affiliated with humanitarian relief efforts in eastern Chad are strongly urged to coordinate travel plans with UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) security officers in Abeche and N'Djamena, and to follow UNHCR guidance regarding safety and security.  The government of Chad requires all individuals traveling to or residing in refugee-affected areas in eastern Chad to obtain permits issued by the Ministry of Territorial Administration in N'Djamena, and to register in Abeche upon arrival in eastern Chad.

American citizens who intend to enter Sudan from Chad despite the Department's Travel Warnings for both countries must obtain the appropriate visas and permits in advance of entry into Sudan.  Further information is available in the Department's Travel Warning for Sudan at http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/tw/tw_934.html. 

American citizens traveling to or resident in Chad should register with the U.S. Embassy by completing a registration form online at https://travelregistration.state.gov and provide contact information and specific travel data if traveling outside the capital.  Registration enables the Embassy to contact American citizens in case of emergency and provide updates on the security situation.  The U.S. Embassy is located in N'Djamena on Avenue Felix Ebou; mailing address B.P. 413, telephone (including after hours): (235) 251-70-09; alternate numbers 251-62-11, 251-90-52, 251-92-33, 251-77-59, 251-92-18; fax (235) 251-56-54; website: http://ndjamena.usembassy.gov.
