The following guidelines are for passengers traveling to Cuba with Delta. If you’re traveling on a different airline, it will be more helpful to review these general guidelines on the Cuba tourist card/visa. Or to review guidelines for JetBlue, Southwest, and American Airlines.

Delta distributes tourist cards at the gate prior to departure for Cuba. Delta flights to Havana depart from Miami, Atlanta, and New York-JFK. You will pick up your Delta Cuba visa in one of those three cities even if you initially depart from a different city like Pittsburgh.

The Delta Cuba visa costs $50, which is the same as JetBlue and Southwest, but less than American Airlines. The initial visa is valid for 30 days and travelers can renew it once for an additional 30.

Your tourist card will be pink. The color signifies that you are entering Cuba from the United States. Whether you are American or not, you need a pink tourist card when flying between the U.S. and Cuba.

Once you have your Delta Cuba visa/tourist card, fill it out neatly and completely. Keep it with your passport and don’t lose it! You’ll need it to clear customs when you arrive in Cuba and when you leave.
