Travel Documents & Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements

 We also highly recommend always double-checking with your airlines for their specific boarding requirements.

Valid Passport

If you do not have a passport it is important to apply for one as soon as possible. It often takes four to six weeks to process the paperwork for a passport (and even longer during the peak travel season of March to August).

If you have a passport, please note it needs to be valid for up to 6 months after your scheduled departure date. 

It is also important that you have at least one completely blank page (with no stamps or visas) in your passport. This is a requirement for entry into many countries. If your passport is nearly full it might be a good idea to apply for additional pages.

If you are a U.S. citizen and need assistance with obtaining a new passport, we recommend working with G3 Visas and Passports to make the process smooth and easy.

*Note: Make several photocopies of your passport. Leave a copy at home with your family and carry a copy with you at all times when you are overseas. If you should lose your passport, having a copy will speed up the process of replacing it.

Visa / Tourist Card 

The Cuban government requires all citizens traveling to Cuba to obtain a Cuban visa prior to their arrival in Cuba. A Cuban visa is also known as a "tourist card.” and is valid for a single entry for 30 days in the country.

You can obtain your visa online through Cuba Travel Services for $85 plus applicable shipping costs (shipping fee is around $27.00). The visa will be shipped via FedEx through Standard Shipping (5-7 business days) or Overnight Shipping:

Important Notes Before Applying:  you should request one visa per each traveler.

Are There Other Ways to Get my Visa?

While there is an option to purchase your visa at some kiosks prior to boarding in some commercial airports, we highly recommend going through a visa provider to make the visa process seamless, avoid any delays, and not risk your ability to enter Cuba.

Dropbox Sign Waiver 

Once you have signed up for the trip, you will be emailed a waiver/license for travel to Cuba via Dropbox Sign via Discover Corps. This includes Cuba paperwork outlining that you are traveling under the "Support for the Cuban People license."
