ETS Security Overview - Chad
Chad is considered a high-risk country with several terrorist groups active within the region. Extremist groups such as Boko Haram, ISIS and Al-Qaeda affiliates have freedom of movement across Western Africa. They can easily migrate from neighbouring countries to mount attacks within the region. Lake Chad is particularly volatile and considered a hotbed for terrorist activity. It is highly likely terrorist groups have the intent and capability to carry out attacks against foreign travelers in the region. Therefore, it’s essential to remain cautious to the risk.
There is a serious risk of crime in Chad; most incidents are targets of opportunity such as muggings and snatching of personal belongings. Criminal activity is more prolific in crowded areas or during the hours of darkness. Armed robbery is on the rise, expatriates and foreign visitors are vulnerable to attacks.
Driving in Chad is hazardous, and Road Traffic Collisions (RTCs) are one of the main risks to foreign travelers in the region. Local drivers are inadequately trained with little road safety awareness. Road conditions throughout the region are dangerous. Many roads outside of N’Djamena are gravel surfaces or dirt tracks which can be challenging to navigate if unfamiliar with the environment. Hazards are also a concern with pedestrians having free access to walk the roads.
Police checkpoints are routinely positioned across major roads in Chad, more commonly during the hours of darkness. Vehicles can expect to be stopped when approaching checkpoints and extortion incidents have been reported. Travelers should also be aware of the threat from carjackings and armed robberies on transit routes. Emergency response times are inadequate which can increase vulnerability if stranded in unfamiliar territory.
