Is she carrying a Canadian passport? She's free to travel anywhere in the world. Cubans don't care where else we've travelled, except perhaps a little jealous that we have the freedom to do so. I had a Customs agent comment on all the Cuban stamps and said I must like it to keep coming back!!

Amo Cuba!!

Hi there, thanks for your reply. we are all from the UK with British passports. Just needed to check on this as she was a little worried.

Tell your mom not to worry! The USA visit noted in her passport will pose no problems when entering Cuba. As a general rule, Cuban Immigration will not stamp your passport, so if you want it stamped, make sure you ask.

Cuba in fact welcomes visitors from the USA and many Americans travel to Cuba via Canada or Mexico. It's the American government that has issues with its citizens traveling to Cuba and depending on the situation, Uncle Sam levies some pretty steep fines if they get caught.

Enjoy Cuba!
