The Consulate General of Spain in Havana has announced that Order INT/657/2020, which establishes restrictions on non-essential travel from third countries (including Cuba) to the European Union and the Schengen area, has been extended.

In a message posted on Twitter the diplomatic headquarters warns that this measure that prevents tourism in the region has been extended until next September 30.

This is how they have informed it:

The news closes again the doors to those interested in traveling to the European Union through tourist packages.

Regarding other consular procedures, the diplomatic office has answered the doubts of several people. As in previous occasions, Directorio Cubano offers you a summary by way of ‘consultation’ and ‘response from the Consulate’ in case you are in one of those cases.

Query: “How is the procedure to legalize the marriage and make the Family Book with your children? Is the procedure done in person or through the website?”

Consulate: “the procedure is presential previous appointment that is obtained in Bookitit through our website.

Consultation: “if we are in Spain and our daughter is in Cuba; already with her nationality and Spanish passport, can we include her in the Family Book here in Spain?”

Consulate: “Of course. Go to the Civil Registry of your locality in Spain to initiate this procedure. They will send us the Family Book”.


Consultation: “I need to know how long a passport can be in the process of personalization, it has been there for almost 4 weeks. It must have changed passports”.

Consulate: “the shipments by pouch, which include the passports, depend on several factors and are not always 4 weeks”.

The renewal of Spanish passports in Cuba is done at the Department of Spanish Passports and Nationals located in the La Lonja building.


Query: “I have an appointment next month to obtain a family visa for my partner, but the flight reservation I have to pay for which I cannot because if the visa is not approved I lose the money, is there any solution to this problem?”

Consulate: “if it is expired, unfortunately it cannot be used when this type of visa is processed again”.

Query: “if the husband has the student visa, but the wife did not present when he did, what can the wife do to accompany him?”.
