TAP resumes commercial flights to Cape Verde
Last updated on: 15 Oct 2020

The flights operated by TAP to the islands of S. Vicente (VXE) and Santiago (RAI) in Cape Verde are no longer operated for essential travel only and resume operation as regular commercial flights.

Cape Verde's borders are open again, which means that travel to the country, namely for tourism purposes, is again permitted.


Given the situation regarding the pandemic, passengers must take into account the following entry requirements:

  • All passengers arriving in Cape Verde must present a negative PCR test for Covid-19  taken no more than 72 hours prior to their arrival.
    • Children under 7 years old (or 12 years old if they are travelling from the USA) are exempt from submitting a PCR test to COVID19.
  • In addition, they must have proof of the EASE pre-registration that must be made also in the 72h hours prior to the flight. Proof of completion must be presented at checkpoints upon arrival.
    • Passengers with a Cape Verdean passport, Cabo Verdean nationals who have acquired foreign nationality, as well as their spouses and descendants, upon presentation of a passport, birth certificate, marriage certificate or other document attesting to the fact that they were born, married, or are children of a father or mother born in Cabo Verde, diplomatic or service passport, a laisser-passer or letter of transit; as well as citizens residing in Cape Verde and children under 2 years old are exempt from completing the online form.

For further information regarding EASE, please check Portal Consular de Cabo Verde (available in english).
