Hi there,

I'm leaving this Thursday with my partner who's Belgian as well. (I'm Swiss).

First Choice provided us with a tourist visa form to fill before arriving at the Cuban customs.

You may want to double check with First Choice but it should be standard for all bookings.

Another day at work and then holidaaaaaaaaaaays for 2 weeks !! Can't wait !!

If he's got UK residency he should be ok with the visa issued by First Choice. My advice, to be certain, is to call the Belgian or Cuban embassy in London.

You will need a passport and tourist visa card to enter.

There are questions on the card the talk to those questions

No need to call anyone. Mardi is correct. Just fill in the tourist visa card and answer the questions regarding citizenship, country of birth and country of residence correctly.

Don't worry!

I travelled with FC to Cuba in November - a friend of mine who came with me has an Italian passport but was born in Belgium. We are both residents in Italy too. We used the FC provided visa form and it was fine.

Have a nice time.

The visa for Cuba isn't aimed at Britons, it's for anyone entering Cuba, regardless of their nationality.
