Visa Procurement

Please be advised that visa requirements are subject to change and that visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not On The Go Tours. Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 6 months from your planned date of departure from Cuba.

All nationals need a tourist visa to enter Cuba, this comes in the form of a 30-day tourist card which 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. The official on entry may ask you if you want your passport stamped or not, otherwise your tourist card will be stamped.

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 US citizens on our trips to Cuba due to present US policy.

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

Departure tax: A departure tax of CUC25 (approximately US$25) is payable when you leave the country - this must be paid in local currency.
