Visitors from Europe will no longer be required to purchase Cape Verde visas when visiting the country. The Cape Verde government is attempting to boost tourism to the islands.
This exemption is expected to start in 2018. The policies also include the improved management of the airports and increasing the growing of crops for exportation. Tourism is a major part of the Cape Verde economy, but the government is anxious to diversify the economy.
The Prime Minister, Ulisses Correia e Silva made this announcement. He also announced the intention to implement financial measures as a stimulus for investment in the country. Residency incentives are also to be included.
