Any traveller wishing to visit the island must be in possession of a Cuba Tourist Card (Tarjeta del Turista) before travelling to Cuba.
Your airline may refuse you boarding without this card. Some airlines and seaway companies, however, can sell it to you on the day of departure, but the cost of the card can range from simple to triple!
For a better peace of mind and to avoid last minute costs, it is highly recommended to obtain the tourist card a few months before departure.
Tourist Card, which allows you to stay in the Cuba for 30 days and is valid for a single entry.
A passport valid for two months beyond the length of your proposed duration of stay.
Proof of a confirmed return flight and booked accommodation.
Proof of accommodation for at least the first night.
Travel insurance that covers medical expenses in Cuba.
The Tourist Card is valid for 180 days (6 months) from the date of issue, which you can find on the invoice, and for 30 day from the day you arrive in Cuba.
To be able to stay for more than 30 days, you can extend your Tourist Visa Card for another 30 days at the immigration authorities office. The cost of the extension is 25 CUC per card, payable in the form of a tax stamp in advance to a nearest state bank.
