U.S. Citizen Services


The Department of State’s first priority is the protection of U.S. Citizens overseas. The Consular Section in N’Djamena can provide the following routine services: Passport Services, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, Notarial Services.


One can become a U.S. Citizen through a variety of means—birth in the United States, birth abroad to a U.S. citizen parent, or through the naturalization process. For all of these, a specific series of legal requirements must be met. At the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in Chad, we can provide certification of U.S. citizenship for eligible individuals born abroad to U.S. citizen parents. We also process Certificates of Loss of Nationality for those U.S. citizens who would like to give up their U.S. citizenship or believe that they have expatriated themselves.

Please, send us an email at NdjamenaACS@state.gov to secure an appointment for American Citizen Services (ACS).
