Introduction of airport security tax “TSA” from January 2019
Cape Verde sets high standards for airport security. In recent years, all Cape Verdean airports have been renovated according to the latest safety standards, security staff has been trained and the security controls have been tightened.
All this has to be financed. Therefore, a new airport security tax will be introduced on the islands from January 2019, the so-called TSA.
The tax will be 150 Escudos (1.36 Euro) per inland fight for each passenger, automatically paid with your ticket, and 3,400, -Escudos (30,83 Euro) per international flight for each non-Cape Verdean passenger (see above).
Our prices are calculated without the TSA until further notice.
From 2019 on, please include the additional costs for the TSA Airport Security Tax in your travel budget.
