This website contains useful and general information, with tips and experiences of those who live, visit regularly or work in Cape Verde on one of the islands. There are Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) which contain general queries and answers under FAQ-Visitors and FAQ-Visa, they are not meant to be taken as factual, therefor you should perhaps use the questions and answers as a resource to find out more on matters or subjects for your own individual circumstances.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the impact of covid-19 in 2020, a number of changes will be introduced within the tourist industry and to all types of tourist activities, therefor some of the information on this site may not take into account those changes.
What I can say is that as the islands develop, things will be continually be changing. Rules, procedures, laws will change without people being informed. In addition to this, those that move here will find that they will be given conflicting information, not be given enough information, or find that they have wasted a lot of time. However, there is hope that things will improve!
