UK updates travel advice for Chad

The UK’s Foreign Office has revised its travel advice for Chad and is now advising against all travel to Chad.
The FCO advise against all travel to Chad. Rebel columns are reported to be moving on N’Djamena and the overall political and security situation is uncertain, and could change rapidly.

British Nationals already in Chad should stay indoors and keep a low profile.

Tensions are also likely to increase in the run up to the May 2006 elections. If against our advice, you do travel to Chad, 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.

There is no British Embassy in Chad.

The Sudanese and Libyan borders are subject to closure.


You should also be aware of the global risk of indiscriminate terrorist attacks, which could be against civilian targets, including places frequented by foreigners.

We strongly recommend that you obtain comprehensive travel and medical insurance before travelling. You should check any exclusions, and that your policy covers you for the activities you want to undertake.
