Travelers should defer all travel to Chad due to the unstable security situation throughout the country, says the Department of State.

On Feb. 14, 2008, citing a need for heightened control over the country, Chadian President Idriss Deby declared a state of emergency, stating that he had signed a decree increasing governmental powers for 15 days. The decree enables the government to control the movement of people and vehicles, ban meetings, put restrictions on the press and set a curfew (from midnight to 6 a.m.).

The national assembly was to decide whether to extend the state of emergency.
