We are still tracking a possible charter flight.  The flight would make stops in other neighboring countries before traveling to Washington, DC.  The date of the flight is not confirmed.

Anyone interested in departing Chad who has not already registered, will be placed on a waiting list.

This is still a very fluid situation, and changes or flight cancellation are still possible.

At this time, we are told the cost of the flight will be between $2,300-$2,800 per passenger.  Payment will be made in the form of a signed promissory note, in which the traveler agrees to reimburse the U.S. Government for the cost of the travel.  The cost of the flight is subject to change.  No advance payment can be accepted.

Except for travelers who are identified as high risk, the list will be on a first come, first served basis and listed according to the priority order written below.

send your response to ChadEvac@state.gov.  Emails sent to other accounts will not be read.

If you do not have a valid U.S. passport, please contact us immediately.
