Cap Verde

If you have recently travelled in a malaria-risk area, please wait six months before donating blood after returning to Finland. Travelling elsewhere in the country results in a 28-day donation deferral period.

Malaria occurs in areas such as the Santiago Island and the Boa Vista Island.

There is no malaria risk, for example, on the islands of Brava, Fogo, Maio, Sal, Santa Luzia, Santo Antão, São Nicolau or São Vicente.
