Cuba Travel Information

What to Pack

Take a lot of toilet paper and small change in quarters and dollars. The latter can be used as small ‘gifts’ that’ll get your job done faster, and for taxi fares (which require small notes or quarters and if you’re short there’s a fair chance you won’t get any change back). Take your flashlight (power outages are as common as the libreta), and do take items of personal use like soap, shampoo, razor blades, oft-used medication and a first-aid kit.

Pack light cottons and sandals, and if you plan to visit the beach, take along your beachwear. Umbrellas and sun block are bound to be useful.

Travel Documents

Cuba requires all visitors to hold a passport that is valid for at least 6 months after the end of their visit. Persons of Cuban origin born after1970 who do not live in Cuba must carry their Cuban passport for entry into the country. Visas are required by all except nationals of those countries that have signed visa exemption agreements with Cuba. Return tickets or proof of onward journey too is mandatory.

Cuba authorises some travel agencies, airlines and tour operators to issue a Tourist Visa Card on the precondition that accommodation is already booked and paid for. Holders of a Tourist Visa Card are exempt from a visa but they must have proof of onward/return journey. Business travellers except those travelling to Cuba for a conference are not eligible for visa exemptions.

Travel requirements for Cuba are in a state of flux as the government begins to open the country to tourists. We suggest you contact the Cuban embassy or consulate in your country for more information on travel documents.
