Cuban Government’s COVID-19 Isolation Program

Upon arrival in Cuba, all travelers are currently required to take a mandatory PCR test and undergo a mandatory period of self-isolation. Travelers are released from quarantine only after they have received two negative PCR test results. The Cuban Government requires nonresident travelers to complete their mandatory quarantine at a hotel participating in the Cuban government’s COVID-19 Isolation Program, while resident travelers are also provided with an option to lodge at a government-run facility.

All incoming travelers must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken less than 72 hours before arrival to Cuba at the port of entry. All travelers will also be required to fill out a health declaration card before being allowed entry in Cuba. Upon arrival in Cuba, incoming travelers will also be subject to a mandatory PCR test at the port of entry, and a mandatory period of self-isolation until they receive the result of the PCR test. If it is negative, another PCR test will be given on the fifth day of isolation; if the second PCR test is negative, the isolation period is over. Travelers who test positive will be transferred to the National Institute of Tropical Diseases Pedro Kouri (IPK).

Currently travelers traveling from the United States may only stay at accommodations that are not included on the U.S. State Department prohibited accommodations or restricted entities list.
