I'll be traveling in Chad soon and have a few language questions. I speak French and English.
I have studied a little bit of Levantine (Palestinian/Lebanon) Arabic and was wondering if that Arabic is close enough to Chadian Arabic that it will be worth brushing up on it and bringing a Levantine Arabic phrase book. Ideas?
Also, which language(s) are most important for speaking with 'regular' people-- restaurants, markets, traveling? In villages, different parts of the country, vs Ndjamena?
I would like to visit Chad independently for a few days this year. The US embassy requires a letter of invitation in support of my visa application. Does anyone know of a tour agency or hotel that would issue me a letter of invitation?
Hello I am working with the artist Gillian Wearing and we are trying to get a short filmed view out of a window in Chad. You can read more about the project here http://yourviewsfilm.com The short film will be edited in to a film of views from all around the world and shown at the Brighton Festival in April. You will receive a short film with your view in and credited as a filmmaker for your film. Would love to hear from people who are interested.
I will visit Chad with an arranged tour between late December (2015) and early January (2016). I will visit the Ennedi region in eastern Chad, which is quite safe (as far as I know). My only concern is that I have to spend two nights in N'djamena (one at the beginning of the tour and one at the end). How safe is N'djamena right now? I know there were some terrorist attacks last summer, but since then things have been more or less calmed. Unfortunately, the recent Bamako crisis and the bomb in…
I see here that not many people ever traveled to Chad.
I would like to travel there for a few days from Cameroon to visit Ndjema and if possible the lake.
Does anybody know if it´s possible to cross the border without applying for the visa in advance
Or do I need to get the visa in Cameroon?
Where is the best way to travel from Cameroon to Chad?
Any kind of Information would be great and helpful.
Thank you so much!
I'm a Swedish doctor trying to visit all the countries in the world within my life span. Have been to 161 this far.
Now, I and 2-3 friends plan to visit Chad and Niger in November (2015) and since Chad is not very well covered by guide books and rarely visited by tourists, save the hard core globetrotter, I decided to try this forum to see what info I can get.
Apart from the capital N'djamena I'm considering visiting the Lake or whatever is left of ot (if not too dangerous on…
I understand you must register your passport with the police/immigration within 72 hrs. However I will be arriving into N'Djamena late Saturday and leaving very early Monday morning. The registration office only appears to be open Mon-Fri. Will it be a problem to fly out without getting registered? In Khartoum they had an office at the airport for passport registration. Do they have similar in N'Djamena airport? Or is there some way I can get this taken care of on a Sunday?
We will be spending two nights in Chad/N'Djamena next month. Arriving Saturday and leaving Monday and would like to visit Gaoui village. Are permits required for visiting there? Will we even be able to get permits on a Sunday? Can tour companies arrange any of this ahead of time? The ones I've contacted seem to only do tours in the BET area.
Does anyone know the address of the Equatoguinean Embassy / Consulate in Chad?
From my online research I know that the diplomats Carmen Nzang Mendene and Caridad Bindang Mba have both been promoted to working there this year (which definitely implies it exists) but I cannot find any contact details anywhere!
Any help would be much appreciated.
Hi. I will probably be somewhere around Benin, Niger and Nigeria early next year (february) and i´m contempling the idea of visiting Chad and Sudan as well.
I red a post in the HUBB about a traveller by motorbike who went from Camerun to Ndjamena and on to Al-Junaynah overland. From there he shipped his bike and took a plane to Khartoum. That´s a wonderful idea. Any info about the possibility of doing Camerun-Chad-Al-Junaynah without own transport? I have an Euorpean passport (i´m white) and…
