As of May 1, 2010, all travellers visiting Cuba must show valid proof of health insurance covering medical expenses when they go through customs. The Cuban authorities will recognize provincial health cards as valid proof of coverage.

The travel insurance under your La Capitale group insurance plan provides much more comprehensive medical expenses coverage than the coverage provided under the provincial plans.


For medical emergencies, we have an agreement with CanAssistance, a Canadian medical, travel and health assistance company duly recognized by the Cuban authorities.

In the event of a sudden illness or injury, please call:

  • 1 800 363-9050 from Canada or the U.S.
  • 1 514 985-2281 (collect) from elsewhere in the world
