Cuba Visa FAQs

When is the best time to apply for my Cuba visa?
The best time to apply for your Cuba visa is 1-2 months before your travel date. However, if you are running short on time, we may be able to process your visa on a faster service at the Embassy’s discretion.

Do I have to send you my passport to get a Cuba visa? Is it safe to send a passport?
Yes. You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Cuba visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa request cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application by a secure method, such as a guaranteed postal service or courier.
