Hi, this is a question for all that have visited cape verde. My husband and i have booked to visit in september and have read alot of reviews about how expensive 'day to day' things are over there ie paracetomol and suncream, what im wondering is what has to be declared on arrival and what is prohibited? I am a chocoholic....im not fat haha a size 8, but i have a sweet tooth and dont really want to pay through the nose for my fix...can i take snacks like this through customs and how much/ do i need to declare etc....
are any normal things prohibited?
Iv been trawling through web pages and cant find anything with regards to what can and cant be taken into the country...if anyone has a link to a website id be forever in their debt!!
I watch nothing to declare and passport patrol (newzeland and aus) all the time and it terrifies me what they pull people up on and would really love to be prepared to save time and embarrassement and a lot of fines haha :)
Have also read that the thompson flight can be long and dull with little on board in the way of food and drinks...can we take our own alcohol/food/soft drinks bought in the airport, to have on the flight or is this not permitted like most long haul? if we can, can these also be carried through customs at cape verd....
any advice appreciated..
mr and mrs bees :)
