Do I need to fill out any specific forms?
You will need to fill out a form (provided by our agency) stating the purpose of your trip.
Do I need an itinerary to travel to Cuba?
Since tourism to Cuba is not approved because of the embargo, immigration officers may ask you for an itinerary as proof of your purpose for traveling to Cuba. It is advisable to work with an agency to plan your trip so that you meet the United States requirements and avoid legal implications.

Yes, you can travel by yourself or with friends and family as long as your purpose is to connect or support the Cuban people or any other approved categories. You don’t need to join a group.
Can I coordinate hotels, transportation, and other services once in Cuba?
It is essential to coordinate your trip from the USA to ensure availability and to be able to pay in US dollars. Once in Cuba, even if you find these services at the last minute, you must pay in Cuba’s currency (CUC), so you will need to bring more cash and you will pay 13% more for these services.
Can I coordinate special events, for example, youth sports tournaments in Cuba?
