Cuba Visa


All foreign nationals, including children, require a visa to enter Cuba (Tourist Card). It is each individual passenger’s responsibility to obtain the appropriate tourist card and to make sure that when you receive it, all details are correct. 

The information provided in this section of our website relates to EU citizens. Other nationalities should contact Cuban Embassy for further advice.

Your Tourist Card is valid for 30 days from the date of entry to Cuba. You may only enter Cuba once during this period.

Please note that if you are travelling to Cuba via Canada, you will also require Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) from the Government of Canada. Click here for further details
