Business Visa  |  Cape Verde


Visa Requirements


::    Passport valid for six months on exit

::    One blank visa page in passport

::    One recent passport photograph

::    Completed application form

Please complete the forms in block capital letters, using black only.

::    Proof of residence

Non-UK passport holders must submit an original, valid UK residence card/permit, or have proof of residence in their passport.

::    Round-trip flight booking confirmation

::    Business introduction letter

The letter of introduction from your UK employer must be an original, signed document on company letterhead. It should note duration and purpose of travel, provide details of the organisation(s) to be visited in Cape Verde, and accept moral and financial responsibility for your trip.




Depending on nationality, you may be able to obtain a single-entry visa on arrival at Sal, Boa Vista, Sao Vicente or Santiago International airport. However, a fee will still be charged and there is no guarantee of entry. We therefore strongly advise applicants to obtain a visa before travelling.

Citizens of Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, East Timor, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Hong Kong, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Macau, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Singapore and Togo do not require a visa to visit Cape Verde.

Visa applications are accepted on an appointment-only basis. On receipt of your documents, we will make the appointment and attend on your behalf.

No refund will be given if your visa is cancelled or rejected by the embassy.
