Control of the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic in Cuba and the maintenance of its borders open

Since November 15th, 2021, the Cuban government has opened the country's borders to international travellers and the airports are operating normally. Upon arrival in the country, visitors must present the complete vaccination certificate and show a negative RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2, carried out a maximum of 72 hours before the trip.

The opening of the country responds to the progressive control of the pandemic in Cuba, the progress in the vaccination of the fully immunized population, which has allowed the creation of adequate and safe conditions for the free mobility of visitors, among other elements of the strategy to confront the pandemic in the country, which confirm that Cuba is a safe destination for the arrival of visitors, the functioning of the tourist infrastructure, the development of hotel, cultural and recreational activities.

As of January 22, 2022, 94.3% of the entire Cuban population and 99.8% of the vaccinable population in the country had received at least one dose of any of the Cuban vaccines. A total of 87.6% had completed the vaccination schedule with three doses, and 42.6% had received a booster dose in selected territories and risk groups. In total, 33,659,922 doses had been administered between the clinical trials, the intervention study, the health intervention and mass vaccination with Abdala, Soberana 02 and Soberana Plus, Cuban vaccines against Covid-19 Source: Website
