Cuba visa or travel card - which one do I need?
3 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

When you plan a trip to Cuba, the first thing that you should concern yourself with is documentation. You need a visa to enter Cuba, except if you are a citizen of a visa-exempt country. However, the rest of the nationals need either a Cuba visa or a travel card. To determine your eligibility for whichever one, you can use iVisa’s Visa Checker. It all depends on your nationality. The Visa Checker is a tool that gives you all the information you need to know.

What is the difference between a Cuba visa and a travel card?

As mentioned above, it is all about your nationality. It will determine which document you are eligible for. There are 20 nationalities that cannot apply for a Cuba travel card. If you are one of them, your only option of getting a visa is by visiting a Cuban embassy and applies there. You do not have access to an electronic visa system like most of the nationalities. While the process is tedious and time-consuming, it is your only alternative. At least until Cuba’s visa policy drastically affected by some changes as it has in the past.

The travel card, on the other hand, is one of the easiest documents to obtain. It is also known as a ‘pink card’ or Tourist card. It gives you access to Cuba, and the best thing about it is that you can get it online. Most of the nationalities in the world are eligible for a Cuba Tourist card, and getting it requires about 10 minutes of your time.

How can I apply for a Cuba Tourist card?

Here is where iVisa intervenes. You can use its services to apply online for a Cuba Tourist card. The process is entirely online, and you can get your Tourist card in as little as 24 hours. All you have to do is fill in an application form.

The application form is straightforward. There are two steps you need to complete, and if you need some help, iVisa provides excellent support service day and night. The first step requires you to fill in the blanks with your general information. It also asks you to choose a processing time. Here is where iVisa distinguished itself from other services. It gives you three choices so that you can select the one that best suits your needs:

  • Standard processing – your application will be processed and your Tourist card delivered in 3 to 5 business days.
  • Rush processing – your Tourist card will arrive within 1 to 3 business days.
  • Super Rush processing – you will have your Cuba Tourist card in 1 business day.

The second step will have you do a quick revision and make the payment. The revision is very important since you cannot correct your application after you submit it. As a result, you will have to go through the process again. As for payment, iVisa accepts multiple means of payment. You can pay with a credit/debit card, a PayPal account, Alipay, or WeChat. After the payment is made, you can submit the application and then wait for the confirmation letter that arrives via e-mail. The Cuba Tourist card arrives via a delivery method of your choice in the timeframe selected during step one.

If you use iVisa to apply for a Cuba Tourist card, you will enjoy one of the most accessible visa application processes in existence. The document allows you to enter Cuba only once, and you can stay there up to 30 days. Only Canadian citizens can stay for up to 90 days.
