International travel to Cape Verde


Although some cruise lines call at Cape Verde, international travel is mostly by plane. There are four main airports in Cape Verde that operate with international flights. These are on the islands of Santiago, Sal, Boa Vista and São Vicente. The other islands are then reached using internal fights operated by TICV or ferry – see Domestic Travel.

Some visitors to Cape Verde will require a visitor’s visa. All visitors are now required to complete a Registration process. This is done online at the EASE website. The registration costs 3,400 CVE (30€) and is payable at the time of registering. This registration should be done at least 5 days before your arrival.

Cape Verde’s borders are now open again. TAP is now showing flights daily to Praia; and to São Vicente three times a week. TUI are showing flights to Sal starting next week and to Boa Vista in November, but we understand that they may not be starting yet. We recommend you check with the individual airlines’ flight schedules, as things can change. Travellers to Cape Verde are required to have a negative Covid test (PCR) result in the previous 72 hours before boarding the plane.
