Question: I live in Denmark and want to know if my Danske Bank credit card (which is not a MasterCard or Visa or Visa Gold) can be used in Cuba.
Answer: In a phone consultation with the Banco Financiero Internacional S.A., Cuba’s main international bank, they said that although you can use a credit card in Cuba against the Danske Bank, it must be either MasterCard or Visa. Cuba will not accept credit cards that are not either of these two categories.
Usually your bank or credit card server can provide information about whether or not their card is payable against banks that do business with Cuba, or whether there has been any change of policy. Cuban will not accept credit cards paid against U.S. banks as, to date, the U.S. banks do no pay.
