Visiting Cuba is not a problem, as tourism is one of the most important industries for that Caribbean country. As a result, there are no restrictions on the entry of people coming from any country. You can purchase a tourist visa for Cuba through a travel agency without the need for a specific application.
The cost ranges from $20 to $80. However, the problem is that it only lasts 30 days and can only be extended twice. In the case of Canadian citizens, since they are the main market of tourism to Cuba, the visa can be extended up to 180 days.
Who can obtain residency in Cuba
Thus, in order to become a Cuban resident, you will require more than just a tourist visa. To be eligible for residency, the government only grants residency to those foreigners who buy or rent a property in one of the real estate agencies controlled by state-owned companies. But these real estate properties are easily priced at over $100,000
Moreover, it is not cheap to maintain it on a monthly basis. This means that the investment is very high. For those who do not have the necessary funds or do not want to invest them in real estate, we can provide you with other alternatives. As a foreigner, it is important for you to be aware that you cannot legally buy real estate from Cuban natural persons.
Obtaining permanent residency in Cuba is almost impossible. Only foreigners who are parents, children or spouses of Cuban citizens can apply. In the case of children, they must be of legal age. The other variant, known as E-2 residency, applies to foreigners who the government, at its discretion, rewards with this residency, provided they are relevant public figures in some area.
As you are now aware, residency in Cuba can be a more complicated process than in any other country. However I can confirm that there are ways to reside legally in Cuba for a short or long period of time without being famous and without investing a fortune. Contact us if you want more information.
