Guests are required to purchase a visa to travel to Cuba. The type of visa that a guest will need will depend on certain factors, including the reason for travel to Cuba.
For all visitors who were not born in Cuba, this visa, also known as a "tourist card" or "Tarjeta Turistica" is required to enter Cuba for non-business purposes.
- For U.S. residents, this visa also known as a "rosada" must have a pink and blue background
- Non-U.S. residents, this visa is issued by the Cuban embassy or consulate in the background color applicable to their country of residency.
The Cuban visa is valid for a single entry and allows the holder to stay in Cuba for 30 days.
U.S. residents may obtain this visa (or "rosada") through their cruise line for a separate processing and procurement fee of $75 or on your own.
Please note that you will not be allowed to board the vessel without proof of acquiring a Cuban visa. The Cuban visa is a two-part card. Cuban immigration officials will take both parts upon arrival in Cuba.
