Beginning in 2023, Cuba launched a new form for travelers to complete before arriving in the country, known as the D’Viajeros Travel form.
Covering a range of topics including basic personal information and customs information, the D’Viajeros form is an important but relatively straightforward Cuba entry requirement that travelers will need to complete before arriving in Cuba.
We’re here to walk you step by step through the requirements of the D’Viajeros Travel Form for Cuba. It might even be easier than you think!
D’Viajeros means “for travelers” in Spanish, and this new document to be completed before arriving in the country is a new Cuba entry requirement for all travelers. Designed to streamline the entry process to the country, this required form covers topics such as the following:
- Basic Personal Information
- Health Information
- Information About Cuba Travel Plans
- Customs and Import / Export Information
The D’Viajeros Travel Form can only be completed online on an official government website that hosts the form. It shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to complete the form once you’ve gathered the required information.
It’s important to keep in mind that the D’Viajeros form is just one step in the process that all travelers need to complete before traveling to Cuba. In addition, travelers will need to secure their Cuban tourist visa (also known as a Cuban tourist card), and secure comprehensive Cuban travel insurance to cover them for the duration of their time in Cuba.

Who Must Complete the D’Viajeros Travel Form?
All travelers entering Cuba must complete the D’Viajeros Travel Form. This includes Cuban-born and Cuban-resident travelers returning to the country.
Travelers visiting Cuba with minor children do not need to fill the form out for their children. Toward the end of your own form, you’ll see a question asking if you’re traveling with minor children. If you select “yes,” you’ll be guided to input your child’s passport information.
When Can I Fill Out the D’Viajeros Travel Form?
The D’Viajeros Travel Form can be completed online up to 48 hours before your arrival in Cuba. The online submission system doesn’t allow for earlier submissions of the form.
How Do I Fill Out the D’Viajeros Travel Form?
The D’Viajeros form can only be completed online at the D’Viajeros Website. This is an official government website that will walk you step by step through filling in the required information and receiving the form with the QR code that you’ll need to submit when passing through immigration in Cuba.
Prior to getting started with the form, gather the documents and information you’ll need to complete the form. This should include the following:
- Flight information, including flight number and airline
- Accommodation information
Don’t have all your accommodations booked for the duration of your stay in Cuba? As long as you have the address of the place you’ll be spending at least the first night in Cuba, you will have no issue completing the form.
Step-By-Step D’Viajeros Guide
- Visit the D’Viajeros website
- Select your language. Change the language of the form by touching the small logo with letters in two different alphabets on the top right corner of the D’Viajeros homepage.
- Select “Form Request” to begin completing your D’Viajeros form
- Input your information. There should be four pages of information to complete, with the website prompting you to select “Next” after completing each page.
- Sign a sworn declaration confirming the veracity of the submitted information.
- Receive the required PDF with the QR code to be submitted to Cuban immigration
It’s important to know that the PDF that you need to present to immigration in Cuba will NOT be emailed to you upon completion of the form. You MUST save the form when you receive it upon completion of the D’Viajeros form.
Save the form to your digital wallet, take a screenshot of the form and its QR code, or print the form – any of these options will serve you upon entering Cuba.
You may note the the form requires you to add your reason for stay. U.S. travelers who are traveling under the Support for the Cuban People category of approved travel to Cuba should select tourism as their reason for travel.

Most travelers can obtain their Cuban Tourist Visa (also known as a Cuban Tourist Card) on the day they depart for Cuba, making it quite easy to meet this requirement. However, you’ll need to purchase a travel insurance plan for Cuba a bit more in advance.
The vast majority of travel insurance providers do NOT cover trips to Cuba, meaning you’re limited in your options for providers. We always recommend traveling with Visitors Coverage (though this company doesn’t cover travelers from certain U.S. states) or Insubuy, which covers travelers from every U.S. state and most other countries.
Don’t think about traveling to Cuba without a good VPN (Virtual Private Network). Using a VPN while connecting to the internet is an easy way to keep your personal information safe from hackers and trackers. We’ve used NordVPN for years and couldn’t recommend it more – it’s a must for safety online, especially in Cuba.
