Warning to travelers to the Cape Verde Islands
There has been some confusion over the application system, regarding Visas to enter the Cape Verde Republic.
For UK citizens traveling to this destination, a visa is required and leading companies are offering (COLECTIVO) at a much lower price than the actual cost for a Visa, which was 41.85 Euros per person, stipulated by the Cape Verde Consulate General in Rotterdam.
There is reason to believe that some of these companies have found a hole in the system to enhance their sales by providing visas to those who are not eligible for that discount. The COLECTIVO is used for those traveling to and from Cape Verde, same destination, same island, same hotel etc, etc.
However, once on arrival at Airport Amilcar Cabral, they are dispersed into different Islands, hotels, guest house etc, a breach of COLECTIVO.
If for some reason your booking does not match the colectivo, you may be asked at the airport to prove that you are part of this system, and if you are not, you may be asked to refund the immigration services with the difference to the real cost stipulated by Rotterdam, and this may cause some delays on arrival. Be aware of these difficulties that may arise if you book a colectivo if you not part of it issued by the Consulate General in Rotterdam.
The immigration Services at Airport Amilcar Cabral in Sal Island, may refuse entry to travelers with improper visas.
