Online services for Cuban passport processing:
1- Cuban passport extension
The first step to apply for this procedure is to select Passport extension on our website. From there, please provide the required information to complete the consular form required by the Cuban authorities. All that remains at this point is to confirm the information provided and then proceed to payment.
You will immediately receive an e-mail with detailed instructions concerning the next steps and your shipping label already paid for. Please go to your USPS or FedEx office with the printed label and then send us your passport, making the label you received clearly displayed on the envelope.
2- Cuban passport express extension
This will be addressed only if one of these circumstances applies:
- Holding a medical certificate of a relative hospitalised in Cuba.
- Holding a death certificate of a relative in Cuba.
- Holding a ticket for the next fortnight.
- Missing a passage in the last three days.
In order to analyse this and other scenarios, please call Opapeleo first, and you will get an answer.
Proof of your emergency must be sent by text message to be analysed by a specialist to verify that everything is in order, after which the express extension will be granted.
The delay time for an express extension is 1-3 working days upon the passport’s delivery to Opapeleo’s offices.
3- Cuban passport for the first time
This service applies to any Cuban citizen fulfilling one of these conditions:
- Cuban passport has never been issued.
- Cuban passport has expired but was issued prior to January 1, 2010 (please check the date of passport issuance on the photo page).
- Cuban passport has been held, but it was lost and there are no color photos of the document.
To apply for the Cuban Passport for the First Time please submit the following documents:
- Original birth certificate (it will be returned to you upon completion of the process). In case you don’t have it Opapeleo can assist you in obtaining your Cuban Birth Certificate.
- Completed and signed consular form.
- Two passport-size photos.
*The delivery of other Cuban documentation such as identity card, driver’s license, account holder’s card, among others, should speed up the process of identification of your person in Cuba.
You should be aware that this procedure implies verification of your identity in Cuba. For this reason, it is essential that your addresses of residence in the Island and/or the reference in Cuba data listed in the consular form are accurate.
Afterwards, you will have to inform your reference that an immigration officer will be visiting you in order to check your identity before proceeding with the passport approval. This verification step causes the process to take longer. For this reason, you should always keep a color copy of your Cuban passport in order to avoid having to process a Cuban Passport for the First Time in the event of loss.
If you have a photo of your passport, this procedure is called Cuban Passport Renewal, which does not require identity verification and the passport is immediately submitted to the Consulate as soon as the Consulate receives our request.
