UK advice on Chad revised

The Foreign Office has revised its travel advice for Chad due to changes in the political and security situation.We now recommend against all but essential travel to Chad.

The relevant sections of the Summary now read:

The overall political and security situation is uncertain, and there are growing reports of intensified rebel activity.

The situation could change rapidly. We do not have representation in N’Djamena and we recommend that you avoid all but essential travel to Chad until the situation stabilises. If you must travel, you should seek local advice from the Honorary Consul in N’Djamena or the British High Commission in Yaounde in advance, and ensure you register with them.

We advise against all travel to the area of Chad bordering the Darfur region of Sudan where, due to rebel activity and the conflict in Darfur, the security situation is extremely unstable.

We advise against all travel to the Borkou-Ennedi-Tibesti provinces in the north of the country, to the area bordering the Central African Republic (CAR) and to the area south of Goz Beida.

The tri-border area where Chad, Sudan and CAR meet should be avoided.

The Sudanese and Libyan borders are subject to closure.

There is no British Embassy in Chad.
