U.S. Embassy Travel Restrictions and Security Review

Due to increased security threats and recent bombings in N’Djamena, U.S. Embassy staff is prohibited from visiting public open-air markets; public places of worship; public events not held at U.S. government facilities or residences; and dining at Restaurant L’Amandine. Embassy personnel are furthermore encouraged to avoid public gatherings on Fridays; and are advised to limit shopping to supermarkets with identifiable security measures in place. The curfew for U.S. Embassy personnel continues to remain in effect between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. until further notice. U.S. citizens should consider adopting similar security practices.

U.S. citizens are encouraged to review and follow the guidance in the Travel Warning for Chad, and remain alert for potentially dangerous situations. U.S. citizens should avoid locations frequented by foreigners, including shops, restaurants, bars, and places of worship. U.S. citizens are reminded to exercise caution throughout Chad, and maintain vigilance in daily affairs, even when visiting familiar locations.
