Can I bring my Ipad?

Been reading that Cuba is a bit funny about electronic items such as GPS enabled phones/devices. Was hoping to bring my Ipad (without SIM card) so I can read some books and watch a couple of movies on the plane. The GPS only works on WI-FI anyway....

According to the Cuban tourism website they only confiscate toasters and anything with a high electric output.

Is it safe to bring my Ipad and my mobile phone (HTC HD2)? Frightened in case they get confiscated!

Thanks in advance!

Quite a few people using Ipads on the plane when we went. We just took the netbook. No problems.

Laptops, e-readers, iPhones or any cell phone including ones with GPS functions, smart phones, iPods, iPads, iAnything, MP3 players, still cameras, camcorders, pro-sumer video cameras, recording devices, Playstations, Nintendo, personal DVD players, etc. - they're all okay.

Basically, leave the walkie talkies, stand-alone GPS units, satellite phones and porno and/or anti-Revolutionary material at home and you're fine.

Have fun.

Cheers.

Terry

PS Camouflage clothing is fine too!

Hi All,

No problem whatsoever. Have a check on my Inside Page on Items allowed into Cuba at this link:

According to the Aduana website Consumer Walk-Talkies are allowed

The Cuban Tourism Board in Canada says that too, but it's not correct. Aduana will still confiscate walkies talkies of any type. It's a crap shoot.

If you read this page of the Cuban Customs website it states that they require import authorization:
