The tourist visa or tourist card, both of equal meaning, are valid for 30 days and may be extended in Cuba in any emigration office by one additional month, although there are some countries whose citizens are allowed to stay up to 3 months. For more information I suggest you look at the Cuban Consulate in your country of residence.
*Children must also have tourist card to enter the country, even if they appear in the passport of the parents.
The requirements to apply for a Cuban visa are:
♦To have a valid passport. We recommend even is not compulsory, that your passport has a minimum of 6 months of validity after your return, although 3 months is also accepted.
♦ Fill in a form.
♦ Show the plane ticket with date of entry and return.

The visa consists of 2 documents, one you should present it to the arrival at the airport when you do the passport control and the other one you must keep it with you throughout the whole trip, because you have to show it at the airport later once leaving again the country.
*Please keep this document safe. It is mandatory to show at the airport when leaving the country.
Travel insurance policy
*An important detail you must consider when you are going to organize your trip is, that it is mandatory to travel with a travel insurance. It is important that you know that you must take an insurance with a company that is recognized by the Cuban government. Failure to comply with this requirement, Cuba makes you get a health insurance on your arrival at the airport. Travel insurance should cover all medical costs that you could incur during your holiday in Cuba. The Cuban authorities prohibit leaving the country while there is an outstanding debt in a concept of health care. I suggest you contact your insurance company and bring a copy of the insurance policy along with your documentation. Policy should say which medical costs covers you during your holiday in Cuba, together with the policy number, your name and the name of the insurance company.
