Cape Verde has dropped all COVID-related entry requirements.  A travel update from the Foreign Office confirmed that it is no longer necessary to show proof of vaccination, a negative COVID test or complete a passenger locator form in order to enter the African archipelago.

The news comes less than two months after the nation ditched its requirement for visitors to complete a health surveillance form when travelling between its 10 islands.

Travellers will still need a complete a Traveler Pre-registration form and if arriving by air, pay the airport security tax.

Visitors who test positive for COVID in Cape Verde are required to self-isolate for seven days from the onset of symptoms or from the day that they tested positive. Those in close contact must take a test and self-isolate if they have symptoms.

The Foreign Office recommends that travellers in need of medical advice while in Cape Verde contact the health authorities on +238 (0) 800 1112.
