(NEW!) INSURANCE INFORMATION FOR TRAVELERS TO CUBA
The Government of Cuba decided last February 16, that all travelers, foreign and Cubans living abroad, coming to the island from May 1, 2010 and thereafter shall take out a medical insurance policy.
The insurance policy should be bought at the country of departure. Travelers, who, exceptionally, do not have insurance at arrival, could obtain insurance and assistance from Cuban insurance companies at the airport, port or marina. (See policy attached)
Travel insurance from Cuban insurance companies and most international insurance companies receive travel assistance services in Cuba from Asistur S.A, available 24 hours all year round.
Residents in the United States traveling to Cuba on direct flights from United States will have to acquire their insurance policy at their country from Cuban insurance companies available through out agencies associated with Havanatur-Celimar Company. US insurance companies do not provide coverage in the Cuban national territory.
Travelers that upon the arrival are subject to control, shall present a policy, insurance certificate or travelling assistance card valid for the time span they will stay in Cuba.
Visitors to Cuba will not only find the natural beauty of the island and the proverbial hospitality of its people, but also absolute safety, which includes, of course, welfare and health. In case of any medical emergency, the Cuban health system guarantees the necessary medical care through a network of clinics and hospitals, covering every corner of the island. Primary health care is provided in most of the hotels.
