In order to study in Cuba, you are required to have a valid Cuban visa and a passport. Cuba presents unique challenges when it come to travel and documentation, and while this may seem daunting – don’t worry – your program manager is very experienced and will work with you every step of the way. If you are traveling internationally in the months leading up to your program start date, please let your program manager know.
