British travellers will be required to fill in a digital passenger locator form up to 48 hours before their trips to Cuba from next week.

The form was introduced during the pandemic, but from 23 January it will be mandatory to fill in the form online before departure.

A spokesperson for the Cuba Tourist Office in London said the form, which is free, had been introduced by Cuba’s Ministry of Transport to collect information such as names and passport numbers.

It is in addition to the tourist card, which is still an obligatory requirement for all British visitors to Cuba.

However, the Cuban Embassy no longer accepts postal applications for tourist cards as it can only take the £19 payment in cash, so Brits must either visit the embassy in person or apply via a third-party visa processing company.

The Cuban Embassy, which offers a walk-in service for tourist cards, is in London’s High Holborn.
