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 are served by international flights. These are on the islands of Santiago, Sal, Boa Vista and São Vicente. The other islands are then reached using internal fights or ferry – see Domestic Travel.

All visitors to Cape Verde are required to complete a Registration process. In addition, visitors from some countries will need a Visa. For more information on registration and visas visit our visa page.

Our partners can book all flights (international and domestic) together with accommodation to create a full holiday package.
