  • Valid insurance coverage for Cuba

    I will be going to Cuba and heard that insurance is a requirement but that US companies cannot cover Cuba. Where can I get the insurance?

    There have been dramatic changes in the US policy towards Cuba recently. President Obama has authorized the expansion of travel and trade. US debit and credit cards can now be used in Cuba. Talks to ease and restore diplomatic relations have begun.

    Now any nationality can buy insurance for coverage in Cuba at https://www.visitorguard.com/health-insurance/ by selecting 'Coverage in All Nations Excluding USA' and clicking the 'Get Quote' button. The Patriot America or Patriot International plan on the quote-results page is recommended.

      Please confirm that you have procedures in place to pay Cuban hospitals for emergency treatment and Cuban Air Ambulances for emergency medical repatriation back to the US. Is it even legal for US based companies to provide insurance to cover travel to Cuba?

        As per §515.580 ,"Persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction are authorized to issue or provide coverage for global health, life, or travel insurance policies for individuals ordinarily resident in a country outside of Cuba who travel to or within Cuba. Persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction are authorized to service those policies and pay claims arising from events that occurred while the individual was traveling in, or to or from, Cuba."

            We do indeed provide comprehensive travel insurance to Cuba and it is absolutely within the law to do so. It is quite easy now of insueres to provide coverage for travel to USA.

            Again, a press release from the Department of Treasury states "U.S. insurers will be authorized to provide coverage for global health, life, or travel insurance policies for individuals ordinarily resident in a third country who travel to or within Cuba. Health, life, and travel insurance-related services will continue to be permitted for authorized U.S. travelers to Cuba."

            For your travel to Cuba, you can consider the Patriot plan - you get a quote and purchase Patriot insurance at https://www.visitorguard.com/apply/patriot-travel-plan/ (you can select the destination country as Cuba)
