What documents are necessary to enter Cuba?
Upon entering the country, you must show your passport, which must be valid for 6 months from the departure of your flight.
You must keep it until you leave Cuba, and in case of loss you must immediately notify Immigration and Immigration to obtain a duplicate or a document that replaces it.
If you are going to travel to Cuba for work, these are the cases in which you are not required to carry a passport:
• Children under the age of 16 from Germany who carry a Kinderausweis
• Travelers who carry a Seaman Book or Maritime Book and are on duty
• Travelers with a Laissez-Passez issued by the United Nations and are on duty
• People who have travel documents for refugees and people without nationality or citizenship, when the document guarantees the return to their country of origin.
Another required document to enter Cuba is the tourist visa. This will be a document that the airlines will verify before allowing you to board the plane.
In general, most tourist packages include a visa valid for 30 days, which must be filled out with the information as it appears in the passport.
This visa allows a maximum stay in the country of 30 days, extendable for an additional 30 days for pleasure or recreation.
If you have any questions about this, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate of your country.
Since May 1, 2010, Cuba requires that tourists who arrive in the country have medical insurance, this insurance policy will be requested at customs when you arrive on the island.
If you arrive without medical insurance from your country of origin, you will be obliged to contract one with the Cuban state insurance company Asistur.
When you arrive in Cuba on a tourist trip, you must bring your ticket or exit ticket for your country of origin.
Real accommodation address:
It is mandatory when entering the country that you inform a real address of accommodation (it can be state or private).
The Cuban authorities must know where all the foreigners who are on the island are staying.
