Procedures and practical informations

Time and deadlines
The attention of travelers is drawn to the fact that their presence is required at the airport two hours before the scheduled departure time. Most companies close their check-in counters 60 minutes before departure time. Once registered, it is also advisable to immediately go to the boarding lounge for police formalities that can be long if several departures are planned.
Arriving passengers must count an average of 20 to 30 minutes to complete the formalities of police and customs and to retrieve their luggage.
Entering the country and visas
Entering the Chadian territory by the international airport of N'Djamena requires for travelers other than Chadian citizens a passport valid more than 3 months after passing the police station. In addition, nationals of certain countries must obtain a visa on arrival or in the nearest consular representation.
WARNING: bi-national passengers who can not prove their Chadian nationality (passport or ID card) are also subject to visa requirements.

Pets accompanied by a recent health certificate will be allowed. Rabies vaccination must be at least 1 month and max. 1 year prior to arrival.
Airlines are particularly demanding on the allowed weight of luggage. To avoid problems at check-in counters, it is expressly required for travelers to check before their arrival at the airport if their baggage do not exceed the permitted allowance. In this case, expensive and non-negotiable luggage fees may be asked. In addition, it is recalled that the luggage must be strong enough to be handled and transported. Plastic bags are prohibited because they tear easily.
Health requirements
The yellow fever vaccine (made at least 10 days before your departure) is mandatory and the international vaccination certificate must be presented upon arrival. Babies younger than 9 months are exempt from this obligation. Travelers coming from countries affected by certain epidemics (eg Ebola, H5N1, etc.) may have to undergo specific formalities: declarative form, body temperature... Pregnant women are reminded that airlines each have a specific policy on the duration of pregnancy not to exceed to be allowed to travel. From the 7th month of pregnancy, flying may be prohibited or a medical certificate may be required. Please check with your airline to avoid being denied boarding. In addition, passengers with a disability requiring assistance or special adaptation in flight must inform the airline to be picked up upon arrival at the airport.
