Chad Visa – How To Apply For A Chadian Visa

The nation of Chad is located in northwest Africa and has a number of business visitors from the U.S. While a business Chad visa is liberally granted, there are a number of documents in need for obtaining the necessary permission to enter and visit the country. U.S. citizens must have a valid passport with at least six months remaining before expiration.

The passport must have at least two blank pages available for the visa and entry stamp, and Chad does not recognize added amendment pages in the back for business visas.

Documentation to Obtain a Chad Visa

  • A completed original Chad visa application plus one copy. The application must be fully completed and signed. Any missing information will result in the rejection of the visa.
  • Two passport-sized (2 x 2) photographs. These must be color with a front view and have a plain or light background.
  • A letter of invitation from a Chad company or sponsor. This is a standard letter that must explain the relationship of the applicant to the company or sponsor. The letter must also detail the expected length of the visit, where the applicant will stay, and the host’s contact information.
