Tourist Visa Card Essential Information
The example shown is just half of the Tourist Card. Each half is almost the same. Both halves must be fully filled out. This will be printed out on your behalf by our staff in cubavisas.com. In order for them to do so, you have to state correctly your personal details when you fill the online form; the details must be as they appear on your passport. There has been a few problems with travellers arriving to Cuba with their Tourist Card wrongly filled, consequently causing long and unnecessary delays when going through customs.
MAKE SURE THAT TOURIST CARDS DETAILS ON YOUR ONLINE FORM ARE FILLED IN CORRECTLY!
If you do make a mistake, it is essential to inform our staff on firstname.lastname@example.org and they will do their utmost to rectify it. If the mistake is spotted too late, it will result in you having to buy another tourist card.
On entry to Cuba the left half will be retained by immigration, the right half is yours. You shall return your half to Cuban Immigration when you leave.
DO NOT LOSE YOUR TOURIST VISA CARD!
If you do lose your tourist card it will need to get replaced, resulting in extra costs, delays and the possibility of missing your flight home.
