Cuba entry changes

Article content

16 April 2010

From May this year any visitors to Cuba not able to produce proof of approved medical insurance will be required to purchase insurance sold at the airport before being allowed to proceed through immigration.

The changes have caused widespread uncertainty within the travelling community, particularly a clause relating to medical insurance policies issued by companies in the USA not being valid for the new requirements.

A spokesman for the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs said from 01 May 2010 all travellers to the country would need a travel insurance policy which covers medical expenses or a policy for medical expenses with coverage in Cuba.

"The insurance policy should be purchased in the traveller’s home country but for those tourists arriving without proper coverage, they will be required to purchase an appropriate policy from a Cuban insurance company at the airport, port or marina where they arrive," he said.
