Havana, October 10 (RHC)-- As part of the new Plan for Confronting COVID-19 recently announced by our government, new measures have been adopted for Cubans abroad, foreigners permanently residing in Cuba and international travelers, which will come into effect as of Monday, October 12th.
In this sense, the following is reported:
Cuban citizens and foreigners with permanent residence in the national territory who had approved extensions of stay or whose terms were due to expire in 24 and 12 months, respectively, as from March 19, 2020, may stay abroad until October 12, 2021 without losing their status as residents in the national territory.
The possibility is extended until June 2021 for Cuban citizens who today are in countries where biometric data capture is applied, to apply for a passport without having to visit our Consulates and Consular Offices. To do so, they must use the application form available on the website of each consulate or consular office and comply with the quality requirements established for the photo and signature.
Travelers arriving on international flights must strictly comply with the protocols and sanitary measures established by the Cuban health authorities.
The PCR test will be applied to all travelers coming from abroad.
For further information, interested parties should contact the Consulate or the Cuban Consular Office in the country where they are located.
