Cuba is an amber list destination until 4:00am on 19th July 2021, when it will be added to the red list. We won’t be operating holidays here after this time.

When you travel to an amber list country, you’re required to get tested for COVID-19 for re-entry into the UK. The specific testing requirements vary depending on which part of the UK you’re from, whether you’re fully vaccinated, and when you’re travelling.  

You may also be required to self-isolate at home for 10 days on your return. 

If you’re returning at or before 3:59am on 19 July 2021 
–    You will need to self-isolate if you’re returning from an amber destination

If you’re returning at or after 4:00am on 19 July 2021
–    If you’re fully vaccinated, you won’t need to self-isolate if you’re returning from an amber destination
–    If you’re not fully vaccinated, or you’re a resident of Wales, you’ll need to self-isolate if you’re returning from an amber destination 

You can find out more on our Entry Requirements page.  

If you’re required to self-isolate, and you won’t be able to self-isolate on your return home, you’ll be able to change your booking to another date or destination fee-free up to 14 days before your departure date. If your destination changes from the green to the amber colour category within 14 days of your departure date, you’ll also be able to change your booking fee-free. 

Just so you know, there may also be separate entry requirements set by the country you’re travelling to.
