The Cuban government changes the ‘Migration Act’
October 16, 2012
Cuba’s government reported that it was eliminated the need for citizens to obtain exit visas before traveling abroad.
This new measure will take effect from January 14 2013 and is part of the ‘modernization’ of immigration laws to reflect current and future circumstances.
It is only required the presentation of valid passport and visa of the destination country in case it is needed.
It also allows Cubans who have permanent residence in the island remain abroad for up to 24 months, instead of the current once, without having to renew the papers.
