Various countries have issued temporary entry bans or at least entry restrictions for various citizens.

Most embassies also do not issue a visa if the traveller has recently travelled to one of the following countries: China, Iran, South Korea, Japan, Germany, Italy, Spain and France.

Please note that new restrictions are currently being introduced daily and AVS does not have all the information from the embassies and the expected restrictions.

Tourist Card

Tourist Card

The tourist cards or entry tickets entitle you to stay up to 30 days in conjunction with a hotel booking. A one-time extension of another 30 days is possible in Cuba. As a rule, the address of the accommodation must be given on arrival and a valid health insurance for the foreign country (usually a private insurance) must be provided.

When entering Cuba, one half of the tourist card (also valid as a visa for Cuba) is removed and stamped, the other half must be carefully stored, as the second part of the card will be stamped on departure. On request, there is no entry and exit stamp in the passport, if you still want to have it as a souvenir, the passport will also be stamped.

Simply order your tourist card from AVS for you and/or your fellow travellers.
