What does Cuba require?

Cuban authorities require all visitors to have a valid Health Insurance Cover before getting into the country. Travel Insurance most likely has a medical cover (check insurance policies). Check with your insurance provider to confirm cover.

What do we recommend?

We strongly recommend having Travel-Insurance, ensuring that it has a medical cover (health insurance coverage) that covers Cuba as a destination. Travel insurance does cover a broader range of circumstances that may not be medical only, giving you peace of mind to enjoy your holiday.

Can I travel without a Medical Cover?

The short answer is no. However, you can purchase local medical Insurance upon arrival, which cost 30 USD. Esen (Seguros Nacionales – National Insurance company) and assistance by Assistur sold locally.

Do I need a Day 2 Test for getting back to the UK?

For fully vaccinated travellers will need to pre-book (ideally before you leave the UK) a lateral flow test for international travellers flying to the UK https://www.gov.uk/find-travel-test-provider. 

You will also have to pre-book a Covid test for when you are back in the UK. Please check the FCO Travel to Cuba section for up to date information.
