Like a spring flower, Cuba blossoms again.

Cuba among most vaccinated nations

Nearly every Cuban is fully vaccinated against Covid, and the majority have had several booster shots. Cuba leads the world with the highest vaccination rates against Covid. With the entire population protected, the transmission of Covid is negligible. Contracting Covid in Cuba is low-risk.

What are Covid rules for Americans visiting Cuba?

  • No Covid tests or Covid vaccination records are required to enter.
  • No masks are required during your stay. They are optional.
  • No Covid test to exit Cuba and return to the United States.
  • Yes, to a great time during your holiday in casual healthy Cuba!

What happens if I test positive for Covid while in Cuba?

If a visitor catches Covid in Cuba, medical professionals will assist and provide excellent advice and treatment if necessary. Associated costs are covered by your Cuban medical insurance policy and included in the ticket price of all flights originating in the United States. If you arrive in Cuba with Covid, included medical coverage is less.

New fast online traveler entry process for visiting Cuba

Cuba has simplified documentation for arrivals. Old paper documents are replaced with an easy online form at the D’Viajeros website. The online form combines immigration and health information in a digital format. You must submit the online form within 48 hours before arrival. You will receive a QR code to present at the Cuban airport.
