VISA - Has anyone on Sal been to the Canaries for a visa.

We went to Gran Canaria in February 2017 for a weeks holiday and to get our visa's.

We hired a car as we were staying in Playa del Ingles in the south and the Consulate was in the north in Las Palmas. We arrived at the Consulate and went in with our passports and asked for Visa for Cape Verde. The woman asked whether we wanted a 1 month or 6 month visa, we wanted 6 months. She then asked when we were flying to Cape Verde, I replied saying early in the morning (as I knew she was going to tell me to come back later or the next day). She asked us to wait 5 minutes. She went away with our passports and 5 Minutes later she returned with our 6 Month visa in our passports. All in all we were in the Consulate 10 Minutes. The cost of a 6 month visa was €86 per person.


Suggest that you have a clear map and address of where the Consulate is situated (with postcode). Contact them prior to arrival at their office on Gran Canaria to make sure they will be open that day. That they can process your visa straight away instead of having to return at a later time.
