Cape Verde embassy for London

It has been announced that the Cape Verde government is soon to open an Embassy in London.  This announcement was made by Rui Figueiredo Soares, the Cape Verdean Minister of Foreign Affairs. He was speaking while at the 3rd Annual Foreign Policy Conference in Praia on Santiago. The minister said that having an embassy in the UK would help Cape Verde take part in international forums. Andrew Mitchell, the United Kingdom’s Minister of State for Development and Africa, has expressed the hope that the relationship between the UK and Cape Verde could be strengthened. The largest number of tourists to Cape Verde are from the UK (36.6% in 2023). However, there has not been an embassy in the UK. A Cape Verde Embassy for London will be very helpful for those UK visitors to Cape Verde who need a visa for visiting the country.
