Americans in Cuba? At all?

Recommended Posts

So my friend's husband was born and raised in the states...moved to Canada a while ago and now owns a Canadian passport. It does state his birth place on the passport.....he should be ok...shouldn't he. I've left several msgs at the cuban consulate but have never received a phone call back.

Should be no problem. Cuba will let Americans in, the issue is if you return back to the US with a Cuban stamp on your passport that the US might get antsy.

 

If he travels with his Canadian passport there are no issues.

This is some good info, when I first came to this site I noticed how many people get married in Cuba and I hadn't even thought of it as an option (apparently for obvious reasons! lol)

 

I would be scared though to go and worry about not being able to get back to the US or something. Which probably wouldn't happen but I'll explore Mexico & the Caribbean more until its on the up & up to visit!

 

Also I think many vacations spots seem scary to some people but after you have been there you get desensitized -which could be a good & bad thing!

Yeah, there will be no problem - Canada has no problem with Cuba. However, if you do go visit the states a few months after you get back, they might ask what you did there - but it shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks for the info...I guess if he is planning on going to the states any time soon he can forgo the stamping of his passport in cuba

Cuba doesn't stamp passports...Unless you tell them you were in Cuba, they'll never know.

Even better if they don't stamp. I thought it was one of those things where sometimes they do sometimes they don't. Like the US. I only randomly have my passport stamped when I enter the United States. It is like 1 in 5 times.

Even if your passport doesnt get stamped they will still know you are coming from cuba b/c you have to have your flight number on your customs form and also have to tell them where you are coming from. I wouldnt suggest lying to the customs people!

Well, since you'd have to take a flight from either Mexico or Canada, and can't make a connector you wouldn't be lying when you say you're coming from Canada or Mexico.

Basically, in order for an American to go to Cuba, they would have to cross the border into Canada or Mexico, either by driving or by flying, then take a completely separate flight into Cuba. There is no way for customs to track that.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
