Cuba opens for tourism on November 15, just in time for the start of the high season. In opening its borders, the Ministry of Tourism (MINTUR) says it will be a controlled and staggered opening, with the expectation that by that date, over 90% of the Cuban population will be fully vaccinated.

Mandatory quarantine and PCR entry tests for international tourists upon arrival are eliminated as of November 7. People without a health passport or international certificate of COVID vaccination must present a negative PCR test, performed no more than 72 hours before travel. The PCR test must be performed in a certified laboratory in the country of origin. A PCR test will only be required for passengers without proof of vaccination.

Cuba will also offer vaccinations for those not yet vaccinated.

Over 69.2% of Cubans are fully vaccinated. More than 99.2% percent have received their first dose.

Tourism, transport, customs, immigration, aviation sectors, and public health workers were the first to be vaccinated in Cuba. They will be given a booster dose.

Other travel requirements posted on the MINTUR website are listed here:

  • Children under 12 years of age, regardless of their nationality, will be exempt from presenting a vaccination schedule or PCR test upon arrival in Cuba.
  • Airlines will require passengers to present proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test performed no more than 72 hours before their flight.
  • The presentation of the Traveler’s Health Declaration (Affidavit of Health) will be required.
