How to get your visa on time to travel to Cuba

This option, known as tourist visa or tourist card will only be required for people who are interested in traveling to the island, but who were not born in Cuba.

It can only be used once and is valid for 30 days after entering Cuban territory. There is also the possibility of obtaining an extension valid for an additional 30 days. For minors with non-Cuban passports, this visa is required even if they are included in the passports of their parents or legal guardians.

To complete the application process YOU ONLY NEED to submit:

  1. Full name and date of birth of the tourist.
  2. Traveler’s passport country and passport number.

This is the fastest procedure (less than 5 minutes) you can complete with Opapeleo by means of a 100% online system that you can use by clicking here.
