The general director of Consular Affairs and Cubans Residing Abroad of the Foreign Ministry, Ernesto Soberon, informed that the new measure is in addition to the provisions in force.
‘Based on the national epidemiological situation, as of June 5, new measures related to the isolation of citizens residing in the national territory came into force, depending on the airport through which they arrive in our country,’ he detailed on his Twitter account.
Cuban residents, upon entering the country through Varadero and Cayo Coco airports, will undergo a seven-day isolation period in the province of arrival, in tourist facilities, assuming the cost of the package, Soberon explained.
‘In order to guarantee higher quality in the provision of airport services, as of June 20, all travelers boarding flights bound for those airports will be required to present a tourist or isolation package, as appropriate,’ he added.
The isolation packages may be purchased through domestic travel agencies before departing abroad or booked from abroad through tour operators that market Cuba as a destination, he set out.
For locals arriving through Havana and Santiago de Cuba, the provisions of June 5 remain in force.
In all cases, the diplomat recalled, the current International Sanitary Control protocols remain in force.
