3. Vaccinations

The archipelago of Cape Verde has a very healthy climate. No vaccination is required by the authorities of Cabo Verde, unless the traveler transits through Dakar. In this case, vaccination for yellow fever is required. Nevertheless, as for many trips, vaccinations against viral hepatitis A and B are always recommended.

Cabo Verde is not a malaria endemic area. Sporadic cases have however been reported. Also the provision of anti-mosquitoes, mosquito coils and skin-applied repellents may be helpful depending on the conditions of accommodation. It is also the best protection against the Zyka virus.

No case of Ebola infection has ever been reported.



Since January 2019, citizens of several European countries are exempted from entry visa to Cape Verde when they don't stay more than 30 days in Cape Verde. They must register on this site and pay an airport tax before their arrival in Cape Verde.
