Cuba updates COVID-19 entry rules for foreign tourists

Cuba updates COVID-19 entry rules for foreign tourists

Written by Harry S. Johnson

Cuban authorities announced that the country has updated the conditions of entry for foreign tourists.

Tourists will have to fill out a special form about their health status prior to their arrival to the island. Upon arrival, foreigners will have thermometry at the airport. A free PCR test for coronavirus will also be administered there. The result of the analysis will be available within the next 24 hours after arrival.

If a person arriving in the country does not have insurance that covers COVID-19, then they will have to purchase Cuban health insurance for $30.

Every hotel in Cuba will have a medical team, which will include a doctor, nurse and epidemiologist. They will monitor the health of tourists and employees. If a tourist’s PCR test is positive, he will be hospitalized, and relatives and friends who have arrived with him will be isolated in a specially designated quarantine zone of the hotel.

Guests can move around the hotel without masks, while observing a social distance, only hotel staff are required to wear masks.

However, during the transfer to and from the hotel, tourists will be required to wear masks.
