Americans in Cuba? At all?
Posted 31 August 2009 - 04:30 PM
but are American citizens allowed to travel to Cuba at all? I thought that the restrictions had been lifted, but the american travel site on Cuba makes it seem like Americans can only go with a specific government visa...
Its not really a problem, but my best friend from childhood married an American, and I'm definately inviting them, and would really like them to come, but I don't want to change my plans .... it has taken me a really long time to be happy about the country I chose!!!
But I'll be really bummed if she decides not to go because her husband can't go. Although, odds are they can't afford it anyway.

If your heart is set on it, and your friend's husband is the only affected guest, then I would say just go for it, especially if there is a good chance that they can't go anyway. If you REALLY want her and her husband there though, I would pick another country.

Maybe these two websites may help.

Most travel through Mexico or Toronto as these routes seems to be the cheapest options.
All you have to do is ask the customs agent not to stamp your passport. They actually know this and won't do it,but you should still ask. It's very safe and thousands go through this every year. I've never heard of anyone ever having any problems upon return.

So, I think it is fair to assume that an American would not make it there for your wedding... hopefully those restrictions will be lifted soon though..

I have known people that have gone with no problem, but it is a total gamble and considered illegal. Unless you get a visa for education or work.
I am so jealous of Canadians being allowed to go to Cuba, I have always wanted to visit, but will want until we are legally allowed to.
