Why not escape the lockdown?
Soak up the sun, gather new impressions or simply move your “home office” to the Cape Verde Islands for a month or two.
Cape Verde has reopened its borders for tourists!
Currently – as of December 21, 2020 – the number of Covid 19 people tested positive in Cabo Verde is below the limit defined by Germany of a maximum of 50 per 100,000 inhabitants, with a falling trend, so that Cape Verde will hopefully be removed from the list of “risk areas” very soon “is deleted.
*** Update on December 26th, 2020: 158 cases currently tested positive. With approx. 550,000 inhabitants, this results in only approx. 29 positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants despite an increasing number of tests. Reason for hope! ***
For entry to the Cape Verde Islands you need an official negative Covid19 test . This can be a maximum of 72 hours old. You can choose to submit a PCR test or – since December 15, 2020 – also a rapid test (antibody test). Both are equally accepted.
Please consult the current regulations on the website of your government.
