MEDICAL INSURANCE FOR TRAVELERS TO CUBA

St George’s May 10th 2010 : Grenadian visitors to Cuba are being reminded of a new policy that affects all travelers to the Spanish-speaking Caribbean nation.

Under the policy established last year – but only implemented from May 1 – all  travelers intending to enter Cuba are now mandated to be in possession of an insurance policy to cover medical expenses.
 
The Cuban Government is advising that the insurance policy should be acquired in the country of origin of the traveler, such as in Grenada for a Grenadian visitor to Cuba.
 
Grenada’s Ambassador to Cuba, Raphael Joseph, has said that travelers who do not have insurance on arrival in Cuba will have the chance of getting one issued by Cuban insurers on arrival at the Cuban airport, seaport or marina.
 
With the new policy, all travelers – including Grenadians – checking in on arrival in Cuba will have to present the policy, an insurance certificate or a travel aid card, which must be valid for the duration of the entire visit to Cuba.
 
Intended travelers to Cuba may visit the website www.cubatravel.cu, or the insurance agency, www.asistur.cu They may also contact the Cuban Embassy in Grenada at 444-1884 for more information.

NO MORE DEPARTURE TAX LINES AT MBIA

St George’s, May 07th 2010 -- Passengers departing Grenada from Maurice Bishop International Airport (MBIA) in St. George are benefitting from a new travel procedure relating to the payment of departure tax.
>Since the inception of airline travel, including at the former Pearl’s Airport in St. Andrew, passengers have had to pay the tax at the airport on the day of travel.

The travel-day payment of the tax, which often led to lengthy lines of anxious passengers waiting to board their planes, has now been eliminated. Under a new policy, implemented from May 4, the tax is being collected by the sales’ agent from whom a passenger purchases an airline ticket.

Tourism officials said they had consulted with travel agents and other sector representatives, who were complaining about inconvenience being faced by travellers – especially at peak departure times – as they lined up to pay their departure tax at MBIA.

The new measure will make travel at MBIA more convenient, will have a positive impact on passengers’ experience to the island, and is also in keeping with international trends, said Hon. Glynis Roberts, Minister for  Tourism and Civil Aviation.
