Cost of Living


The Cape Verde Remote Working Program consists of a temporary work/tourism visa lasting 6 months, with the opportunity of renewal for another 6 months after. This program is meant for people who are self-employed and who are able to work remotely, using the Internet and other electronic and communication tools that don’t require a fixed office. You can come alone or bring your family: everyone is welcome at Cape Verde.

To get the best from this remote working experience you’ll need to apply for a 6-month temporary visa. Once your request gets accepted, you’ll receive a permit entry to the country.

Upon arriving in Cape Verde, you have 30 days to obtain the Visa that allows you to extend your stay beyond 30 days and up to six months. To do that, you should contact the Program via email, to arrange the delivery of the Visa application. The processing time is approximately 5 working days.

Make sure your passport is valid for 6 months(minimum) and you have all the documentation required.

Please consider that depending on how long you want to stay in Cape Verde, you might need to extend your Visa on the ground. If you’re having any trouble regarding this topic, please let us know.
