INTERNATIONAL TESTING REQUIREMENT FOR TRAVEL INTO THE U.S.

In addition to the above requirements for travel to Cuba, the United States Government is requiring special procedures for all passengers, 2 years of age and older, traveling into the U.S.


What you’ll need:

To avoid longer processing times at the airport, complete each of the below steps prior to arriving at the airport. For your travel from Cuba to the United States you will need to do two things:

  1. Submit an attestation form to the U.S. Government, through Southwest, that you are COVID-19 negative or have recently recovered from COVID-19. Each passenger will be required to submit a form (if you are traveling with others, they will also have to fill out the form) within 72 hours of your trip. You can find a printable version of that form here. For the Spanish language version of the form, click here. If you do not complete the form electronically, please bring a paper copy of the completed form with you to the airport. However, if you do not complete the form prior to arriving at the airport, you will need to do so at the airport prior to boarding and may be subject to long lines.
  2. Bring evidence of your qualifying COVID-19 negative viral test result or your recent recovery from COVID-19, which could be either of the following:
    • A physical document of a qualifying COVID-19 negative viral test taken within 3 calendar days preceding your flight’s departure to the U.S. To find testing locations in Cuba, click here. Your negative test result must include your government issued name or passport number, specimen collection date (within the past 3 days), and the lab or physician’s name.
    • Evidence of recent recovery from COVID-19 including both (a) a signed letter on letterhead from a licensed healthcare provider or public health official that you have recovered from COVID-19 and are ‘cleared for travel’ and includes the name, address, and phone number of the provider AND (b) physical document of a COVID-19 positive viral test result obtained within the 90 days preceding your flight to the United States. Your positive test result must include your government issued name or passport number, specimen collection date (within 90 calendar days), and the lab or physician’s name.

To avoid longer processing times, complete each of these steps prior to arriving at the airport. All Passengers will need to go to the ticket counter where we will verify your documentation before you can proceed through to security. If any Passenger does not meet these requirements, boarding will be denied.

You can learn more about these requirements and process at the US Centers for Disease Control.
