To enjoy the benefits established for migrant (preferential interest rates and tax breaks), according to the Decree-Law n º 53/95 of 26 September and Ordinance No. 61/95 of 4 December, update annually Proof Quality of Emigrant.

You must up date annually, according to cape-verdian laws your proof of emigrant status, by presenting or sending to BCA the following documents (original or certified copies):
  • Passport, national or foreign;
  • Updated professional card and certificate of residence or documents that prove the exercise of a remunerated activity and that certify your permanent residence abroad;
  • If it is not possible to present these documents, you should present a certificate, issued by the capeverdean diplomatic or consular authority, proving that you live abroad and that you have been practicing a remunerated activity in the country of residence for more than one year;
  • Capeverdean citizens that reside in Cape Verde, who are pensioners of other countries and receive their pensions through BCA, don't need to present documents to prove their emigrant's condition, because the pension serves as a proof.
