Cuba requires that all arriving travelers have a Tourist Card or Visa to enter the country. This visa is to be purchased for all non-Cuban born travelers that are traveling under one of the 12 permitted categories. There are two documents you must have to travel to Cuba, a passport and the tourist card. The traveler must fill it out with black ink and no mistakes. In case a mistake occurs the traveler needs to purchase a new visa. The Tourist Card is perforated in two sections, the immigration representative will keep one perforated portion and the second section will be turned in upon departure. *Please do not detach the two separate sides. Immigration in Cuba is responsible for this.
TOURIST CARDS ARE NOT VALID FOR INDIVIDUALS BORN IN CUBA. FOR THOSE INDIVIDUALS BORN IN CUBA THE VISA ENTRY PROCESS IS DIFFERENT AND YOU MAY CONTACT US DIRECT AT (305) 428-3603 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION ON THE PROCESS.
