Cuba introduces digital form for travelers from 2022

HAVANA, Nov 20. Cuba will impose the use of a digital form for travellers who intend to arrive in the country as of January 1, 2022. The Ministry of Transport (Mitrans), together with the State agencies related to the entry of travellers to the country, ordered the use of the D’Viajeros computer system. The beginning of the year marks the end of the physical forms, so it will be mandatory to fill in the data digitally.

It is an application, available on the Dviajero website that is owned by Mitrans. You can access the web from different devices (computer, mobile phone or tablet) as long as they have an Internet connection.
The form must be filled out by all travellers, whether Cuban or foreign, who enter Cuba through Airports, Ports and Marinas.

According to the Cuban authorities, the online application “facilitates the experience of travellers in their transit through the country and provides information to speed up procedures at the different points of entry.” In the online form, travellers are required to provide general, immigration, health and customs information.

“Once the form is completed, a document in PDF format with the QR code is sent by email, which must be shown, either on a device or in print, to accredited personnel in Cuba,” indicates the official newspaper Granma. El Mitrans pointed out that the use of the application is mandatory for each passenger arriving in the country.

They warned that “the information provided to the Directorate of Identification, Immigration and Aliens, the General Customs and the Ministry of Public Health must be completed truthfully.”

The mandatory use of the application begins on January 1, 2022, but as of this November 15, the date on which the country opened its borders to tourism and increased its number of flights to Cuba, it began to be tested.

Until December 31 of this year, the use of the electronic form will be promoted in order to optimize it. At the moment the form is only seen in two languages, Spanish and English, which could be an inconvenience for many users, for example, Russian tourists visiting the country.
