Travel to Cuba with expired GC

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, we are planning a trip to Cuba in July, I have traveled to Mexico and Europe with my expired GC, I-551 and extension letters (12&18mos) before and I haven't had any trouble. Would traveling to Cuba be an issue? I have my valid Mexico Passport.


I was wondering if someone have experienced this before

I don't have personal experience with this, but the Cubans won't care (Mexican passport holders are visa free). As for the airline on the way back, there are so many Cuban American green card holders that visit, I would be very surprised if the check in people weren't familiar with the extension letter.
