Cuban passports will now be valid for 10 years

(CNN Spanish) — Starting this Saturday, July 1, issued Cuban passports will have a validity of 10 years for those over 16 and 5 years for those under that age.

Until now, those over 16 received a 6-year passport, which was extended every two years, something that has been scrapped as of this month.

The changes stem from the decree published this Friday in Cuba’s Official Gazette, which amends the country’s Immigration Law Regulations.

The decree also establishes that the consular fee for passport applications will be 180 dollars or euros for those over 16 years of age and 140 dollars or euros for minors.

Cuba’s director of consular affairs, Ernesto Soberón, said these actions comply with the government’s intention “to continue strengthening ties with our citizens abroad”.
