Some things to note

Some things to note icon

Please note:

  • A trip to Cuba is a unique and rewarding experience, a country largely untouched until now. This means that hotels, transport and facilities sometimes lack creature comforts. Accommodation may be of varying standards as tourism demands are surpassing current infrastructure and it is possible there can be unexpected changes. As such, travel in Cuba requires an adventurous spirit, flexibility and an open mind.
  • The Mausoleum of Che Guevara is closed on Mondays.
  • The USA has now designated Cuba a State Sponsor of Terrorism. While this is a political action on the part of the USA it does have implications for anyone who decides to visit Cuba, including Australians. The following is directly from the US Customs and Border Protection official ESTA application website:

How does Cuba’s designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism impact my travel to the United States using my approved ESTA?

If a traveller is found to have visited a country designated as State Sponsor of Terrorism, the traveller is no longer eligible to participate in the Visa Wavier Program and must apply for a visa to enter the United States.

What this means is that for clients who choose to visit Cuba, it is not possible to enter or transit the USA using an ESTA (visa waiver) and clients would be required to obtain an actual visa to the USA. In order to obtain this visa, an in-person appointment and interview at a US embassy or consulate is required. In Australia the only places where this is possible is in Melbourne or Sydney. The appointment time cannot be requested, is at a time decided by the embassy and wait times for an appointment and interview can be lengthy. This obviously adds considerable inconvenience and expense to the process, especially for clients not residing in one of these locations. This would also apply to any future travel plans to or via the USA so has implications for any future potential travel in years to come.

We intend to continue to support the wonderful people of Cuba and offer this independent touring package to those clients who, after considering the situation, would still like to visit this unique destination.

The Small Print:

  • Prices are per person based on twin share. Single Supplement on request. Seasonal surcharges apply. Please contact our office.
