The citizens of 18 countries in the world are exempt from getting a visa for Cuba, but the rest of the nationalities can either apply for a Cuba visa at the embassy or apply online for a Tourist Card. UK citizens are eligible for the latter. It means that you are no longer needed to go to the nearest Cuban embassy to get your visa. Instead, you get to apply online using the services provided by iVisa. The process is entirely online, and you can have your visa in as little as 24 hours.
If you decide to apply online with iVisa, you should know that you need very few things. iVisa will not ask you to upload any documents. All you need is a passport and your personal information. Once you get to Cuba, however, you need to provide the following documents:
Keep in mind that if you travel with minors, they need to have their own Tourist Card (each of them) since children cannot travel on their parents’/guardians’ documents.
The cost of your Cuba Tourist Card depends on two factors: the visa type and processing time. The first one is easy. Since you are a UK citizen, you need to select the International Tourist Card. As for processing time, iVisa gives you three options so that you can choose the one that best suits your needs. They are as follows:
iVisa designed a simple and comprehensive application form that you should complete in 10 minutes or less. If you need some help with it, you can refer to iVisa’s support service which is available 24/7. There are two steps you need to complete. The first one will ask for your personal and travel information, and you must also choose the processing time and visa type at this point. The second step consists of payment and revision. iVisa accepts multiple means of payment such as credit/debit cards, PayPal, Alipay, WeChat. As for the revision, it is crucial that you double-check the information you provided in step one because you cannot make any corrections after the application reaches the processing stage. If you make a mistake, you need to repeat the process. After you make the payment, you can submit the application and wait for your Tourist Card to arrive in the timeframe of your choice.
As you can observe, getting a Cuba visa for UK citizens is more than accessible. The process is fast, it is affordable, and your efforts are minimal. The Tourist card allows you to spend 30 days in Cuba, but you have the possibility of applying for an extension for another 30 days. You are granted a single entry.
