The Ministry of Public Health (Minsap) informed that as of today, the mandatory quarantine measure for travelers coming from South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Malawi and Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) is eliminated.
These, as well as passengers and crew members from other nations, are required to present a negative PCR-RT (Polymerase Chain Reaction) test result, performed up to 72 hours prior to travel.
They must also show the Certificate of Vaccination antCovid-19 of the immunizers approved by any of the corresponding Regulatory Agencies.
Cuban authorities maintain the rest of the international sanitary control measures established at the entry points to the island, the note on the website of the health portfolio underlined.
On January 5 of this year, the Minsap established the regulation focused specifically on those eight African states due to the increase in cases and the power of dissemination of the Omicron strain of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, first detected in South Africa and declared of concern by the World Health Organization.
