HAVANA TIMES — Starting today Cubans can once again apply for passports and identity cards as the system failure has been repaired, informed the Ministry of Interior. It was a week that the service was unavailable. The good news comes as many travelers prepare for trips during the upcoming summer season.
The following is the official note from the authorities:
As a result of work done by a multidisciplinary team of specialists of the Ministry of Interior, identity card and passport services were restored.
Starting early Thursday measures were taken to provide an efficient response to the logical increase in demand, with the resumption of work in our offices.
We reiterate our apologies for the inconveniences caused by the suspension.
