Protocols of entry for Russian tourists to Cuba in 2022 have not changed
From January 5, 2022, the Cuban authorities have tightened the conditions for the entry of foreign citizens into the country. According to Cuban central media, unvaccinated tourists will no longer be allowed to entry, and all vaccinated will need, in addition to a certificate, to provide a certificate of a negative PCR test, made 72 hours before departure.
However, an exception has been made for citizens of the Russian Federation. As the Cuban Embassy in Moscow reported, the sanitary protocols for the arrival of Russian citizens have not changed.
To enter Cuba, Russian tourists still need to provide either a vaccination certificate in English (Cuba recognizes all Russian vaccines against COVID-19), or a certificate of a negative result of PCR test made 72 hours before departure.
The certificate must be in paper format with an original seal in Russian and English. Children under 12 years old do not need any certificates.
As of the Cuban Embassy in Moscow, as of the end of December 2021, more than 145 thousand Russians have visited Cuba. This is the second result in foreign tourist flow.
According to the forecast of the Cuban authorities, in 2022 more than 200 thousand Russians will visit Cuba.
