Government approves the amendment of the decree for the materialization of the visa waiver law

Praia, May 4 (Inforpress) – The Government approved today the amendment of the decree-law for the materialization of the visa waiver law, taking into account the country’s strategy to receive more tourists and to have more citizen exchange and mobility.

At a press conference in Praia, Minister of the Presidency and spokesman of the Council of Ministers (CM), Fernando Elísio Freire, clarified that it is about the adaptation of the law that regulates the legal regime of entry, stay, exit and expulsion of foreigners from the Cabo Verdean territory, as well as their legal situation.

This adjustment, according to the ruler, is to create a technological platform where pre-registration and visa applications will be made for non-visas and those with this privilege.

“This will serve to strengthen security so that travel to Cabo Verde is faster and easier and, above all, to strengthen the control of all the citizens who visit the country,” he explained.
