Entry Visa

When you enter Cape Verde at one of the international airports on 4 of the 9 inhabited islands, tourists will need a 30 day visa. Europeans and some other nationalities can pre-organise their visa online, or pay it on entry on arrival. However, it is best to check with the Cape Verde Embassy before you travel, you don’t want to be refused entry!

Circumstances for various countries and different nationals can change, as may the conditions of entry. An example of this was when the entry visa was no longer required for Europeans and some other nationals from 2nd January 2019. Instead of an entry visa fee of 25 Euros, the Cape Verde Government introduced an Airport tax at 31 Euros. When the covid-19 virus started to spread, the Government of Cape Verde re-introduced the entry visa fee for Europeans etc. It’s likely that the situation with entry visa’s and airport tax will keep changing in the future.

Cape Verde Embassy in Brussels

The Cape Verde Embassy in Brussels should be one of the main contacts for enquiries about an entry visa. The Cape Verde Embassy can help with other travel queries.
