Expatriates travelling to Cuba from May 1st will be required to have adequate expatriate healthcare in place to cover any potential evacuation by air.
The new policy, announced by the Cuban government earlier this year, will apply to Cuban expatriates living abroad and all visitors from overseas.
The medical insurance will be sold by foreign companies given approval by the country’s government or by Cuban firms at points of entry to the island, Reuters reported.
Cuba boasts a strong healthcare system which is enjoyed free of charge by citizens but the global economic situation has left the country needing new sources of revenue, the news provider said.
Any holidaymakers or expatriates returning home will need to show proof of medical insurance when they arrive. Diplomats and representatives of approved international organisations will be exempt from the policy.
The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office gives information on its website and warns that buying medical insurance on the island could be more expensive than obtaining it in advance.
