US citizens are not permitted to travel to Cuba without special permission from the Department of Treasury. This also includes "payment for air travel to Cuba". Source: U.S. Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control, Part 515 Cuban Assets Control Whether you get caught or not is another matter (they won't stamp your passport), but personally ...

Since you mention that you are open to getting to Cuba not necessarily directly from Europe but through a intermediate destination, my recommendation would be to consider one of two Canadian travel hubs: Montreal and Toronto. I recommend these because destinations in and around where Cuba are the main tourist places for Canadians for a big chunk of the ...

There is only one definite confirmation and that is the flight. If you are on it, then it exists. Now, you might want to know if it will probably occur in advance and for that, the second best option is the airline itself. You checked Cubana's site which is a good step. To do better, call them and ask about that flight when whether it runs a the particular ...

No, you're not subject to it - it's the US who has put an embargo on trips to Cuba for their citizens. However, you may have difficulty finding a flight there from the US, as commercial flights generally don't fly there. I have heard of charter flights doing it, but the most common route is ex-Canada or Mexico - fly there first, then connect to a flight to ...

While I initially laughed at the idea, apparently there might be: Hotel Islazul, Guantánamo city may be able to arrange tours to the American military for around $40 though this service is not always available. It does seem to be a long shot though. It's a US Military base, which generally means off limits unless you're enlisted, family, or have an ...

Use cubajet.com to buy tickets online. This service supports payment by Visa and MasterCard. Also you may use Maestro card. As alternative, you always may buy tickets directly in airport. There are official desks of Cubana and Airmexico airlines inside International Airport of Cancun. But remember to buy ticket at least 4-5 days before the flight. When ...

As several commenters have said US citizens must enter and exit the US on their US passport no matter how many other passports that they hold. So there is no reason for the US border people to be looking at any other passport you might have to start with. Relax! If you are concerned that somehow they will look for two stamps from Mexico in your UK passport ...

Long story short. I think what you're concerned about FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act). The minimum amount required reportable by any foreign institution is $10,000, which means that if you keep under that amount in your Mexican account they technically don't have to report it but they still might anyway. There is no requirement to report ...

I have U.S. residency (Green Card). Do I need a visa to visit Canada or can I use my Green Card? As a U.S. Green Card holder, you do not need a temporary resident visa to travel to Canada. At the Canadian border, you will need to present your valid passport and Green Card. Citizenship and Immigration Canada

Any American citizen (even if you have dual citizenship you are still an American citizen) requires a license to travel to Cuba (http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Programs/Documents/cuba.pdf). There was a loop hole that allowed American's to travel to Cuba without a license while being "fully hosted", i.e. having someone not subject to US ...

As stated in the first answer, it is technically legal to travel to Cuba but illegal to spend money. Travel restrictions are easing up a bit under the Obama administration. You can travel to Cuba now with designated person-to-person tour groups, but the itineraries are limited to education-based activities and not, for example, spending time on the beach. ...

Traveling Cuba using Viazul buses is the best way in terms of price, comfort and safety. Unfortunately Cayo Coco is accessible by plane or taxi, and not by using Viazul buses. You can use a taxi from Trinidad to Cayo Coco. Or you can use the Viazul from Trinidad to Ciego de Avila, and then use a taxi from Ciego de Avila to Cayo Coco. This second option is ...

Air Europa would do what all airlines do - ensure you're legally permitted to visit the country (in this case, Cuba). This would usually mean a check of your passport, nationality, and whether you require a visa before boarding - ie, whether or not you're able to get one on arrival in Havana. This will depend entirely on Cuba's relationship with your ...
