Types of Cuba Visa

Cuba Tourist visa


Processing Time 3 - 7 days

Duration of Stay 30 days

Visa Fee $75.00


Eligibility

  • This is the type of visa issued to persons intending to visit Cuba for tourism purposes.
  • There are two ways to able to travel to Cuba as a tourist.
  • You can either go to the nearest Cuban diplomatic mission for a visa, or you can apply online for a Tourist card.
  • However, not all countries are eligible for a tourist card so you need to be sure your country is not among the 20 nationalities that do not have access to the tourist card.
  • You should also check the embassy’s website to learn exactly what to do.
  • Usually, the process starts with you filling an application form.
  • If you qualify for a tourist card, you can apply online using the services provided by iVisa.
  • The process is entirely online, and you can get your visa in as little as 1 business day.
  • The bottom line is that you can get a Cuban tourist visa at a diplomatic mission, but you should first check if you are eligible for a tourist card and apply online. It would definitely make things easier for you.
