Cuba-specific questions

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I had some questions about preparing for the embassy interview in Cuba ... trying to get some things done in advance.

Cuban birth certificates.. some countries have multiple formats (short, long/international, etc). Does this exist in Cuba? my fiance has never heard of multiple formats, but then neither had I until I started this process ha ha! And is some special long format needed to bring to the interview? or just a "normal" birth certificate?

For the medical interview, is it necessary or beneficial for my fiance to bring old medical records, or at least vaccination records? I think these would be a little difficult or expensive for him to get, as they probably exist only in the small rural place where he grew up. Does anyone have experience or advice regarding this in Cuba?

Anything else that is unique in Cuba with regard to things you need to have for the interview?

Thanks in advance,

Sheryl

Hola,

My fiance had his med exam today, he did not have to bring old records or vaccination records. As far as the birth certificates; I was born in a small town in Matanzas and my birth certificate is a short form (hand written). My fiancee was born in Oriente and his is a long form. I am guessing whichever one he has should be fine, I have not heard of any issues with a long or short form birth certificate. I hope this information was helpful. Best wishes!
