The Embassy of the Republic of Cabo Verde to the United States of America informs all the Cabo-Verdean nationals that, as a result of the Government decision to suspend the international flights, they were stranded on the US territory despite having a return ticket, that the Government of Cabo Verde will try to take advantage of an exceptional flight organized by the US authorities, destined to bring their nationals retained in Cape Verde, to facilitate their return to the country.
The Embassy clarifies that this is not a rescue flight, and it’s not for Cabo-Verdean nationals residing in the United States of America.
So, the Cabo-Verdean nationals in the above-described situation should immediately contact the Embassy in Washington, D.C.
Telephone 202 965 6820
They should provide all the required details on their passports, the existing return tickets and follow the upcoming instructions.
