Cabo Verde Digital Nomad Visa

Cabo Verde Flag


The stunning Cape Verde archipelago, a former Portuguese colony, consists of 10 islands located 570 kilometers west of the African coast in the Atlantic Ocean. Blessed with year-round sunshine, some islands experience minimal rainfall, resulting in an impressive 350 days of sun per year.Despite its natural beauty and ideal conditions for remote work, Cape Verde’s Remote Working Cabo Verde program is not widely promoted. However, it is open to individuals from Europe, North America, the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP), and the Economic Community of West African States (CEDEAO).
