Public Prosecutor investigating alleged Cape Verde visa-issuing scheme

Portugal’s Public Prosecutor is investigating an alleged fraudulent visa-issuing scheme running in Cape Verde.

Portuguese authorities have already searched the premises of the Common Visa Centre and the Portuguese Embassy on the archipelago’s main island. The set up is suspected to involve making it difficult for locals to obtain a visa, pushing them into an illegal scheme where they can pay upwards of €4,000 for the permit.
