Cabo Verde charges a fee of US$35 on foreign travellers

16 August 2018

Passengers disembarking at airports and airfields in Cabo Verde from January 2019 on both domestic and international flights will have to pay an Airport Security Fee (TSA), according to a diploma published in the country’s Official Gazette.

The fee varies from 150 escudos (US$1.5) to 3,400 escudos (US$35), depending on whether the flights are domestic or international, and citizens holding a Cape Verdean passport are exempt from payment on international flights, as are children up to two years of age.

The diploma establishes that “passengers who, on official missions, disembark from aircraft in the private service of the State of Cabo Verde or a foreign State, on a reciprocal basis, are also exempt from the TSA.”

Holders of a diplomatic passport are also exempt from paying the Airport Security Fee. (macauhub)
