According to the source, such regulations are meant to protect Cubans from possible contagions as they require services and to improve consular assistance during the pandemic.
Information coming from offices of Cuban Residents Abroad and Consular Affairs, explain that Cubans in countries where biometrical data capture is applied will be able to have their passport without visiting the consulates.
In order to do so, they must use the application form available on the website of every consulate or consular office, and meet the quality requirements established for picture and signature.
Likewise, automatic and free of charge extension of their uninterrupted stay is maintained beyond the established 24 months, so Cubans abroad will keep the status of residents in the national territory.
Cuban residents who are abroad now will be able to return home exceptionally with an expired and non-renewed passport.
In addition, for Cuban residents abroad to travel to Cuba they need to have their passport in order for which all necessary details will be granted, including distance consular procedures, according to the press release.
