Advice

🛡️ Travel safety

Do not travel
Hassan Djamous International Airport and land borders have reopened. The security situation following the death of President Idriss Déby remains volatile with a heightened risk of violent conflict and civil unrest in all parts of the country. If you're in Chad, you should remain vigilant, activate your emergency arrangements and consider leaving by commercial means if it's safe to do so. Avoid all large gatherings, protests and demonstrations. Closely monitor local media. We continue to advise: Do not travel to Chad overall due to the significant risk of terrorism, crime and civil unrest.
