Tourist Cards for Canadian citizens are valid for 90 days, but can be extended in the same manner as those for foreign nationals for a maximum stay of 6 months
Travelers must have travel insurance which covers medical expenses or a policy for medical expenses with coverage in Cuba. The insurance policy should be taken out at the home country of departure. Travelers who do not have insurance at the time of arrival can take out a policy of insurance and assistance from Cuban insurance companies at the airport, port or marina.
If you have a criminal record, you must contact your local Cuban diplomatic mission to determine if you are eligible for entry into Cuba. Those going to Cuba for the sole purpose of business, must also apply for a Business Visa with the mission.
