U.S. Embassy N’Djamena, Chad

The United States established diplomatic relations with Chad in 1960 following its independence from France. Relations between the United States and Chad are strong. Chad is emerging from half a century of regional conflict and internal turmoil, and pursuing better governance and development. Chad is currently at risk of violence spilling over from Libya, the Central African Republic, and Nigeria. The Chadian Government is taking steps to improve infrastructure and foster stability. The United States continues to encourage Chad to advance good governance.

The United States provides humanitarian assistance to refugees and internally displaced persons throughout Chad; encourages Chadian commitment to regional stability and security; promotes human rights and the rule of law; supports responsible public revenue management; and maintains U.S.-Chadian cooperation on regional and international counterterrorism initiatives. The U.S. government works to achieve these goals through diplomatic engagement and multilateral, regional, and bilateral assistance programs.

Chad is eligible for preferential trade benefits under the African Growth and Opportunity Act. Chad’s exports to the United States are dominated by oil, while imports from the United States include machinery, plastics, and cereals. The United States does not have an investment treaty or a bilateral tax agreement with Chad.

Today, the U.S. embassy is in N’Djamena.
