Questions & Answers
Can US citizens travel to Cuba Legally?
Locally Sourced Cuba Tours are not experts in U.S. law and the rules around U.S. travel to Cuba appear to have been left purposefully vague. This is their current understanding of the situation regarding travel to Cuba from the U.S. If you are travelling to Cuba from the U.S, you need to fall under one of the approved categories of travel (regardless of nationality), and independent people-to-people travel is no longer an option. This means that you need to either travel with a licensed US tour operator (Locally Sourced Cuba Tours are not a US based organization) or travel under one of the other approved categories that allows for independent travel to Cuba. The most popular approved category for independent travel is – ‘Support the Cuban People’. Locally Sourced Cuba Tours design tours to fit this category by fulfilling the following criteria: - Tours that patronize privately owned small businesses in Cuba - Itineraries designed to expose you to the local Cuban people and steer funds toward its citizens. - Opportunities to eat at a Paladares (privately run restaurants) -Tours that stay at Casa Particulares (privately run accommodation) - Clients who have the opportunity to partake in a full schedule of activities focused on people-to-people interaction and cultural exchange. You can learn more here – http://locallysourcedcuba.com/us-travel-to-cuba/ If clients are to travel to Cuba independently under the approved ‘Support the Cuban People’ category, they would be able to obtain their Cuba Visitor Visa through their airline. The airline would also include the required health insurance as part of their air ticket. Alternatively, they can pre-purchase your Visa here: http://www.cubatravelservices.com/plan-your-trip/visas/
