Travel to Cuba - Health insurance required

As of May 1st, 2010, the Cuban government will require that all visitors to Cuba, including Cuban nationals living abroad and persons residing temporarily in Cuba, obtain traveller's medical insurance as a condition for entry into Cuba.

Passengers will be responsible for ensuring that the coverage they purchase covers medical costs in Cuba, and is valid for their entire stay in that country. A Canadian health care card will be accepted as proof of coverage, but Canadian travellers should first find out to what extent medical costs incurred in Cuba are covered by their provincial health care plan.

Although insurance should be purchased prior to entry into Cuba, it will be possible for passengers to purchase it upon arrival in the country.
