HAVANA TIMES, April 1 — Cuban tourism and health authorities continue to keep potential visitors to the island in the dark about a new travel insurance requirement that takes effect on May 1.

It was announced several weeks ago that visitors, including Cubans living abroad, must either possess a travel health insurance policy with a foreign company approved by Cuba or purchase coverage from a Cuban firm.

Most Havana Times readers agree that a tourist should have health insurance for any treatment needed as a visitor to Cuba, that’s not the issue. However, a lack of information has some people reconsidering their vacations to the island.

The concern is over the lack of information about what foreign companies will be approved and/or the logistics and expense of buying a Cuban travel policy upon arrival. These details have not been forthcoming, creating uncertainty in a competitive tourism industry market.
