Cape Verde: Various travel information

Cape Verde: Various travel information

Arrival and travel on and between the islands

With a few exceptions, tourists come to Cape Verde (Cape Verde) by plane. An international airport is located in Sal and Praia. Cape Verde can best be approached from Frankfurt/Main. With the exception of the island of Sal, tourism in Cape Verde is still underdeveloped. The visitor has to be prepared for deficiencies in the infrastructure. One problem is the inadequate and not always reliable flight and ship connections between the nine inhabited islands of the archipelago.


The road network is not very extensive. Rental cars are available in the main islands. An international driver's license is recommended. Public buses are inexpensive, if not always comfortable, to travel across the islands.

Ferry connections

Boats and ferries run between all islands. A new ferry service runs twice a week between Praia and the islands of Brava and Fogo.

Air connections

There are a number of airports in the Cape Verdian Islands. The airports on the island of Sal and in Praia are served by international airlines. A flight from Frankfurt, for example with Condor, takes around 6 hours. The others are used for air traffic within the island state. These are airfields on or in: Mindelo, Santo Antão, Sâo Nicolau, Boevista Maio and Togo.

Travel medicine, vaccinations and warnings

Infectious Diseases

In Cape Verde the following diseases are to be expected in Germany and Northern Europe:

  • cholera
  • Dengue fever
  • various intestinal diseases such as worm infestation, salmonella, shigella, amoeba or lamblia
  • Typhoid, but only those who come into contact with contaminated food and drink
  • Zika virus infection, it is transmitted by mosquitoes and is extremely dangerous for unborn babies
  • Malaria. There is a risk of infection with tropical malaria in the capital Praia and on the island of São Tiago. The other islands are malaria free.

Vaccination recommendations

  • diphtheria
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Influenze (flu vaccination)
  • Whooping cough (pertussis)
  • measles
  • mumps
  • Pneumococci
  • polio
  • rubella
  • tetanus
  • typhus

Compulsory vaccination

For all persons older than one year and coming from a yellow fever infection area designated by the WHO, there is a compulsory vaccination against an illness with yellow fever.

Otherwise there is no further compulsory yellow fever vaccination

for children

In most countries where a yellow fever vaccination is required, this also applies to children over one year of age, and in some countries even from six months. It should be noted that a vaccination against yellow fever had a number of side effects, such as encephalitis. Around two-thirds of those affected were children under six months. Therefore, under no circumstances should children under this age be vaccinated. But children under one year of age should also not be vaccinated if possible. If in doubt, yellow fever infection areas must then be avoided. Any vaccination against yellow fever may only be carried out in specially authorized yellow fever vaccination centers!

Cape Verde: currency

The local currency of Cape Verde is the Cape Verde Escudo (CVE) with a fixed exchange rate to the euro of:

110.265 CVE = 1 euro


Incidentally, the national currency was pegged to the euro in 1999.
