This has activated a series of measures including significant restrictions on movement throughout the country. There are no commercial flights out of Cape Verde. However, it may be possible to leave on a European repatriation flight. If you are a UK visitor, normally resident in the UK, and you want to leave Cape Verde please contact the Consular Assistance Line on +44 1908 516666. The Cape Verdean authorities have closed all sea borders, stopped commercial flights to the islands and have restricted flights from the UK, US, Canada and a number of other European countries from 18 March.
