Moving to Cape Verde: the mini - simple but winning guide!

Cape Verde is the state that, every time it is mentioned, arouses in people a feeling of peace and well-being. You can imagine yourself already relaxed, on one of the beautiful beaches of the island, sunbathing and enjoying the local beauty.

If you want this beautiful dream to become a reality you just have to do one thing: carefully read the next lines.

 

Small but very important tips that will allow you to find a property in Cape Verde and maybe move into one of the most beautiful paradises in the world.

So, let's get started!

                

A little geography never hurts, especially when it comes to a destination so unique.

Cape Verde is located 500 km off the coast of Senegal, the name has been absorbed by the African peninsula of Cape Verde, the most eastern point of the continent.

It is an archipelago of volcanic islands that dot the Atlantic Ocean, and is inhabited by about 500,000 people of various nationalities. The capital is Praia.

 

Necessary is a brief excursus on the climate. Yes, because unlike many other islands, Cape Verde suffers from an extremely dry tropical peak all year round (bye bye humidity!).

To counteract the excessive heat, irrigation systems have been completed in recent years for both water recovery and to support the population during potential periods of drought.

 

Language is the sore point for many investors who want to travel or move to a new country. Don't worry! The state language is Portuguese, but both Cape Verdean and above all English and French (the latter being taught at school) are widespread.

 

After overcoming this immense linguistic obstacle, we begin to go into detail, first analyzing the documents needed to access this country.

 

Compulsory are :

the tax code (NIF)
the criminal certificate 
identity document
passport
visa (work or residence)

 


Let's take a look now at the health sector, which is often a sore point and a very important determinant in the process of choosing a place to visit.

On the national territory there are many health facilities (public or private) despite certain diseases require movements from one 'island to another.

On the other hand, the costs of a specialist visit, but in general of health care, are really derisory.

 

 

Dulcis in fundo : the purchase or rental of a house. Buying or signing a lease in this country is both convenient and simple. There are many studios for rent but especially popular are the old villas modernized with sea views.

Prices start from 50,000 euros for an apartment on the coast, while for a rental contract we speak of a minimum of 100 euros per month.

 

 

What are you waiting for? With this simple and intuitive mini guide, Cape Verde will not have more unknowns for you!
