Cuba Updating Entry Requirements

In order to facilitate and speed up the check-in at the Cuban airport, the Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Tourism of Cuba are implementing a NEW FORM to provide information in advance prior entering and leaving Cuba.

Travelers can log in at: to access this new form.

In the past, clients were given these forms on board, but starting on Jan. 1, 2022, paper copies of the following documents will no longer be available:


* International Boarding and Disembarkation Card

* Customs Declaration Form

* Traveller’s Health Affidavit


All travellers must provide information online within 72 hours before departing for Cuba. Once they provide it, they will receive a QR code by email. Travellers must show an electronic or printed version of the QR code to authorities upon arrival.

Lessner Gonez, Director of the Cuba Tourist Board in Canada, said: “There is no doubt that this is a way to improve the travelers experience through the airport and to speed up procedures at the different points of entry, now passengers will have a stress-free flight and don’t need to hassle filling out forms on board.”

Cuba has made it easy to enter the country, it has eliminated the quarantine and the PCR test upon arrival.

Now, incoming travellers must show their valid passport, tourist card (included), COVID-19 medical insurance and proof that they are fully vaccinated (all Health Canada approved vaccines and mixed doses are accepted) or, if they are not vaccinated, they must submit a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before entering; children 12 years of age and under, are exempted from presenting a vaccination certificate or PCR test.
