Can I get a Cuba Visa from Miami Airport?
3 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

Heading to Cuba and wondering if you can get your visa at Miami Airport? Let’s find out.

Traveling to Cuba isn’t just about soaking in the sun or exploring historic sites; you also have to think about the essentials, like getting your travel permit. If Miami is your entry point to the Pearl of the Caribbean, you might be wondering whether you can obtain your visa at the airport before you fly (spoiler alert: you can).

Fill me in

This blog will explain everything you need to know about the visa process at Miami Airport, helping you better manage your travel prep. Let's get started.

Can I get a Cuban visa at Miami Airport?

Yes, you can. The visa you can get is called a Cuba Tourist Card, which is required for most visitors to Cuba.

A Cuba Tourist Card, also known as a Tarjeta de Turismo, is a slip of paper that you manually fill in with your details. It comes in two colors: a pink card for US citizens and travelers arriving in Cuba directly from the US (which is the one you’ll apply for at Miami Airport) and a green card for travelers arriving in Cuba on a flight that departed from any other country that’s not the US.

Some nationalities are not eligible for a Cuba Tourist Card: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, India, Iraq, Iran, Kenya, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Syria, Yemen. If you’re traveling with a passport from one of these countries, you may need to apply for a Cuba Tourist Visa A1 at the nearest Cuban diplomatic mission before your trip. We recommend you confirm this with your airline before you start your journey.

You can purchase a tourist card from an authorized travel company at Miami Airport. Cuba Travel Services (CTS) comes highly recommended. They have “Cuba Travel Ready” kiosks located next to the check-in counters and departure gates for American Airlines and Delta Air Lines. The total cost of the Tourist Card from CTS is USD$100 (USD$50 visa fee + USD$50 processing fee).

How to get a Cuba Tourist Card at Miami Airport

Fill me in

Before purchasing your Tourist Card, make sure you have the following (which you’ll also need to enter Cuba):

  • Passport that’s valid for 6 months after you arrive in Cuba. It needs to have at least two blank pages for stamps.

  • Travel health insurance that’s valid for the duration of your stay in Cuba (American Airlines tickets come with health insurance coverage for an extra USD$25).

  • General License. This is not a piece of paper or some form. Because you can’t travel to Cuba from the US for tourism, having a General License means the reason for your trip falls under one of the 12 categories of authorized travel by the US government. An immigration officer may verbally ask you to declare your category and produce a travel itinerary that supports it.

  • Flight itinerary showing a return ticket or proof of onward travel from Cuba.

  • D’Viajeros Form. This is a health and customs declaration form required by the Cuban government. Have a printed version or the QR code/digital copy on your mobile device.

    Purchase the Tourist Card and, using block letters, fill in both sides of the visa in block letters. You’ll need to provide the following details: last name, first name, date of birth, passport number, and country of citizenship.

When you enter Cuba, you’ll present the completed Tourist Card along with your passport to an immigration officer (keep the other documents close to show them when requested). The immigration officer will return the Card to you, which you’ll need to keep with you for the entirety of your trip. When you leave the country, an officer will take the Card.
