Cuba Visa Requirements
All nationals need a tourist visa to enter Cuba, which comes in the form of a 30-day tourist card that MUST be obtained prior to departure - contact your local embassy or visa company for details. Entry is granted on production of a passport valid for more than six months, proof of accommodation (although this is rarely asked for) and a return-flight ticket. On entry the official may ask you if you want your passport stamped or not, otherwise your tourist card will be stamped.
Important: your stamped tourist card should be left in your passport for the duration of your stay. Do not lose this piece of paper as you will need to produce it on departure.
US Nationals: Officially, travel to Cuba for tourism purposes is prohibited under U.S. law for U.S. citizens and others under U.S. jurisdiction. Check with the US Department of State for more information. While we hope that things will change in the future, we are therefore unable to take U.S. citizens on our trips to Cuba due to present U.S. policy.
Departure tax: A departure tax of CUC25 (approximately US$25) is payable when you leave the country - this must be paid in local currency.
