Obligation for all passengers arriving to Cuba to present a negative PCR test carried out no more than 72 hours before arrival by a certified laboratory in the country of origin.
Considering the international epidemiological situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic and taking into account the high percentage of cases detected with a source of infection abroad, the Cuban authorities have established as an essential requirement for entry to the national territory of all international travelers, the certificate of completion of a negative PCR test 72 hours prior to arrival in Cuba.
Each traveler must present to the International Sanitary Control authorities upon entry, the certificate that accredits it as "negative to COVID-19", issued by a certified laboratory in the country of origin.
This measure will take effect from January 10, 2021.
Upon arrival in Cuba, the health protocols already implemented at the border will be maintained; which include performing a new PCR test. Five days after that first PCR test, a second one will be performed.
People who stay in private residences will be recommended to remain isolated for five days, but not those who stay in hotels, where specific sanitary surveillance protocols are applied to protect the health of guests and service persons.
