Online Visitor Registration
All visitors over the age of 2 need to register online prior to visiting Cape Verde. This should be done at least five days before arrival. This covers a stay of up to 30 days and costs 3,400CVE (30.83€). The fee is paid online at the time of registration. If you have done this prior to your arrival you should join the ‘Taxes Paid’ queue when you arrive at the Cape Verde airport. It is important that visitors ensure that their passports have at least 6 months to run after the return travel date.
