Consular procedures: services provided by the Cuban consulate in the US.

Oct 20 , 2023

A consulate of a country represents an extension of the country to be represented outside its physical territory. In these institutions, the diplomatic mission of the country is in charge of providing information or services required by its citizens, emigrants or any person wishing to travel to the country or needing any kind of advice related to it. On today’s post you will find out everything you need to know about the consular procedures you can perform at the Cuban consulate in the USA.

Where is the US Cuban consulate?

Cuba, as most countries, has a worldwide network of consulates and embassies. The Cuban Consulate in the United States is located in Washington DC.

  • Address: 2639 16ST NW, Washington DC, 20009
  • Phone number: 202 797 8515-18
  • E-mail: [email protected]

The diplomatic mission has been inactive in terms of face-to-face procedures since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, but provides its services through postal mail, courier services or through its extensive network of agencies distributed across the United States, many of which provide services 100% online, as is the case of Opapeleo.

The Consulate charges a non-personal processing fee of USD 20 for using one of these remote methods. Minor children and other elderly or disabled family members are exempted from this additional payment.
