Exporting to Cape Verde


Hello, I am considering exporting alcohol to Cape Verde ( I beleive there is a gap in the market ) and wondered if any one has any experience of exporting to Cape Verde?


Dear Patrick,

Thank you for your question.

Apologies for the delay in responding. I’ve been trying to ascertain if we have any representation in Cape Verde. It is very minimal.

You may want to contact your local International Trade team for some advice. The contact details are here http://www.ukti.gov.uk/export/unitedkingdom/southwest/contactus.html




Hi Patrick

Country of Origin for the goods must be declared on the invoice, which ideally should be SITPRO alligned, due to this a Certificate of Origin is not officially required however may be requested by your importer in which case a European Comunity Certificate should be used.

There are also strict food and drink labelling regualtions in place so best to do your homework.

You may find it useful to contact these indivuals / organisations for further guidance:
