Above is an example of a Cuban Visitor Visa (sometimes referred to as a Cuban tourist card or Cuban entry card).

This example shows how you to fill it out.

It is scored vertically in the center. Cuban Immigration retains one half when you arrive. You keep the other half with your passport during your stay on the island. You return your half to Cuban Immigration when you leave Cuba.

Don’t lose it while in Cuba. You’ll have to replace it, resulting in extra costs, delays and the possibility of missing your flight home.

You must have a Cuban Visitor Visa to enter Cuba, together with a current passport valid for one week following your departure date. Requirements are different for American born in Cuba. They should contact the Embassy of Cuba in Washington for more details.
