Entry Requirements - Visas
British nationals require a visa to enter Cape Verde.
British passport holders travelling to Cape Verde can for a fee (cash notes), obtain a visa, valid for 30 days, for entry into Cape Verde from customs on landing at any of the international airports in Cape Verde (Sal, Boa vista, Praia or S. Vicente).
For those travelling via Senegal there is a Cape Verde Embassy in Dakar. Specialist travel agents dealing with Cape Verde can also arrange visas.
There is no Cape Verde Embassy in the UK. The UK is covered from the Cape Verde Embassy in Brussels. The address is: Ambassade du Cap-Vert, Avenue Jeanne 29, 1050 Bruxelles, tel +32 2 64 36 270; fax 32 2 64 63 385, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

2Yes, that's true. All international airports offers Visa on Arrival. It is a very easy way. You only need a passport and 25 Euro. Than, you go to the foreign office at the airport. The only thing the customer does is to fill out a receipt. You don't get a Visa in your passport, only a stamp. after that you go back to the passport control.
Some Embassies tells you (In Switzerland and Germany) that it is not possible to get a Visa on arrival. Simply ignore them. (Visa at an embassy is a burocratic, long and expensive way). On Cape Verde it takes 2 minutes.
I never heard, that an Airline will not let you onboard without Visa for Cape Verde.
