Time to Travel is Now

Cuba and the Dominican Republic are open to the world with hygienic measures that guarantee the safety of customers. We have summarized the answers to some frequently asked questions about traveling to Cuba and the Dominican Republic, consult them here.

Cuba

Cuba has reopened its doors to international tourism and welcomes its guests. Almost 90% of Cubans are currently immunized with their own vaccines developed in the country. All tourism personnel (guides, taxi drivers, service personnel in hotels and all other tourist areas in the country) are already vaccinated and with a booster dose.

From May 31, 2022, the mandatory use of the sanitary mask is suspended. For travelers arriving in the country, there is no entry requirement. Only random tests will be carried out, according to the risk of the country of origin.

For all travelers there is no entry requirement. Only random tests will be carried out at the border, for travelers from high-risk countries.

To enter the country through international airports / ports, you need to meet the following requirements:

  • A tourist card valid for the travel period (for European countries it can also be booked through Caribbean Tours).
  • International travel medical insurance with COVID-19 coverage. This insurance is mandatory. If no insurance has been purchased in the country of origin or proof of entry is not available, Cuban medical insurance for the duration of the stay must be purchased at Cuban airports after arrival.
  • Online trip registration before departure – we are still clarifying if this is still the case – no official statement on this. All travelers must previously fill out an Affidavit of Health. From January 1, 2022, this declaration, along with other information on entry and customs details, must be submitted online through the “D’Viajeros” system (https://www.dviajeros.mitrans.gob .cu/inicio) before entering Cuba.
  • The baggage allowance per passenger accepted at the Cuban airport depends on the conditions of the airline with which you fly.
  • Luggage is disinfected at the airport.
  • After leaving the airport, you will be able to move freely around the country, enjoy your stay in Cuba to the fullest and you will be able to stay in the accommodation of your choice (either a state hotel or a private accommodation “Casa Particular”). There is no “quarantine obligation”.
