- Cape Verde Entry Permit in the Passport.
- Permit of residency.
- Original Purchase Bill – if your vehicle is new.
- Diplomatic exemption for Expats and Diplomats.
- Original title of the vehicle with chassis numbers, engine and model and make.

- Receipts of paid taxes.
You can contact the Cape Verde Embassy for any further documentation and any other requirements as well as to get all the necessary help you need when importing your car. The auto transport agent that you have chosen is also going to be able to give you more information. This would allow you to make proper preparations for the international shipping of your vehicle. Depending on the shipping method you choose, you may have to thoroughly clean the interior and to detach everything that is on the outside of the vehicle. The ultimate cost of the shipment is going to be based upon the type of shipping you have selected among other things.
- Ro/Ro shipping – this is by far the quickest shipping method and the cheapest one. You are going to simply drive your car on to the freight ship and get it back at the receiving point. This is generally the most preferred option. There are some limitations but it is worth the price.
- Container Shipping – you are going to be able to load your personal items inside the container along with the car. This method can take a little longer than the Ro/Ro method but it is preferable if you want to transfer any other personal belongings along with your car.
