The West African island nation of Cabo Verde is the latest destination preparing to open its borders, as it will start receiving international travellers from July 2020.
Famed for its rugged beaches and volcanoes, the Atlantic Ocean Island will welcome tourists to their country to pick up the pieces following COVID-19. Cabo Verde depends heavily on tourism as a catalyst for economic growth.
A statement issued by the country’s Ministry of Transport stated that Cabo Verde is currently preparing to safely receive visitors. “Indeed, the work of preparing the country, as a tourism destination is underway, in order to receive tourists with security and peacefully.
“This is being carefully planned and the reopening will be gradual so that the success in combating COVID-19, in the main tourist islands, continues to be consolidated, generating confidence and credibility for operators, tourists, employees and the general public,” the statement revealed.
Cabo Verde joins the likes of Seychelles and Tanzania who have already opened their doors to international arrivals.
