Cape Verde Tourist Tax


A Tourist Tax is payable by visitors to Cape Verde. The tax applies to all visitors staying in hotels, apartments, villas, and bed & breakfast establishments, etc. The tax is €2 (CVE 220) per person, per night for up to 10 nights to a maximum of €20 for each guest. Visitors under the age of 16 are exempt. The Government requires each accommodation establishment to collect this tax and it is usually collected on arrival.

Note: the Tourist Tax will be increased to €2.50 per person per night from January 2023.

The tourist tax is also used to help raise the standard of living for residents, promote and improve the quality of tourism in Cape Verde, through training, increased security and ecology etc. Tourism to this lovely country helps local people through spending in shops, bars and restaurants. The Tourist Tax is an additional way to improve the economy in the country, which then benefits residents.
