There is a minimum charge for work performed by Despachantes in Cape Verde. There are different Despachantes operating on each island.
If items are under a certain value and weight, the law says that you don't need to use a Despachante at the arrival island, however you would need to make your own enquiries as to what this amount is but please note, some people have said that on arrival at the Cargo Terminal and the Customs Office (ALFANDEGA) they were told that although they were under this limit, they still had to go to a Despachante.
Rules can change hence why we are not specifying what the laws are!
You will need to translate the name of the goods and value to Portuguese for all your invoices.
If the ALFANDEGA are happy to accept you don't need to use a Despachante, an official from the ALFANDEGA will come down and inspect the cargo and check it. If all is OK they will stamp your documents and you can take your items out of Customs after paying ASA fees or any other fees.
