I want to travel to cuba but now I cant get a cuban passport

I came from cuba when I was 7 years old in 1979, I became a US citizen when I was 21 years of age, I have not traveled to cuba neither have obtained a new cuban passport I still have the one that was issued to me when I came back then, as a memory perhaps. Now i have decided to travel to cuba but I was told that I need a cuban passport and that since March 17, 2014 they are not issuing new passports. Is there a way that I can go to cuba atleast for 3 or 4 days? do you think that cuba will let me in without arresting me or giving me a fine for not having a passport? I have asked friends in cuba and they tell me that cuba will let me in if I travel through nassau, and that i will have no problems. Is that true? if so then why do all cubans get passports to travel to cuba if it would be so easy just to enter through a 3rd country? I need real answers and true ones, is there anyone that can help me?

It doesn't matter whether you fly direct or via a 3rd country you need a valid Cuban passport. You will need to wait until the Cuban Interests Section in Washington have sorted out their banking problems created by the US Embargo.

Do you have a US passport?

What's the relevance of that question Spunky? Surely it's immaterial.

Just wondering if a US passport has country of birth?

As usual the absolute worst source of travel info is Cubans themselves. Do NOT try to show up with just your US Passport, Robert.

You have no choice but to get a Cuban Passport. Call the Embassy in Canada.

Good luck.

Cheers,

Terry

(I see where you're going Spunky, but yes, the US Passport lists country of birth so Robert is screwed using that route too.)

Spunky: US passports always indicate the country of birth.

We toyed with the idea last trip of my wife using her Oz passport to enter Cuba just to see if it would work - even though like most of the world's passports her place (city) of birth is listed. Sanity prevailed as we thought of the hassles that would be created if say she got away with it on entry but was detected on departure.

That's one of those interesting experiments you want someone else to try, Fidel. Haha...
