A passport from the United States, as well as a Cape Verde visa, are required for travel to Cape Verde, often known as Cabo Verde. At the moment, there are two visa options available. There is a one-time entry visa that is valid for up to 90 days. You can also get a visa that allows repeated entries and is valid for up to five years. Your World Health Organization (WHO) vaccination card should be up to date. You may be asked to show this card at any time.

Applications for this visa may be requested from:

Cabo Verdean Embassy
3415 Massachusetts Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20007
(202) 965-6820

Cabo Verdean Consulate General
300 Congress Street #204
Quincy, MA 02169
(617) 353-0014

If none of the above alternatives work for you, you can apply for a Cape Verde visa when you arrive at one of their international airports. The price is around $31 in US dollars but may change. Payment in US dollars is encouraged, as credit card processing is unreliable owing to intermittent power. Visa credit cards are the only cards accepted for payment. MasterCard and American Express are not accepted.
