When asked if a visa is needed to travel to Cuba, the answer is yes. As a Spanish citizen, if you are going to do tourism, what you need is the so-called Tourist Card, a green paper document that you must complete when you receive it and deliver it upon arrival in Cuba. This authorizes them to be in Cuba for 30 days, extendable for another 30 more while already in the country.

Obtaining the tourist card is very easy. You have the following alternatives:

  • By mail through the consulate. In that case, the shipping costs will have to be paid. Payment cannot be made in cash either.
  • Through an agency. It can be a physical travel agency or an online visa issuing agency. These usually charge a management cost, which depends on whether it is done regularly or urgently

Keep in mind that you will have to hand in the other part of the tourist card when you leave Cuba. Therefore, it is important that you keep it with your passport. If you lose it, you will have to go to an immigration office in Cuba and pay a fee.
