  • Our Story
    When we met it was so obvious that we liked each other. We both was trying really hard not to smile too big and /or say stupid things. Everyone noticed. I was told by an ex-room mate if I needed anything in Cuba to look him up and he would help me. So, before we left the "misa", I passed him a note with my phone number. The next day he showed up and invited me to go out. For being from different countries we shared so much in common. Faith, priorities, likes for entertainment. And I haven't been this happy (he says the same) for many years. Its wonderful that as a older adults you can find someone who makes you feel 16 again. Butterflies and ear to ear smiles. But what really got me was when he took me dancing. Lawd have mercy. We have has a long hard road with immigration but married June 5th, 2017 and know that we will be together soon.

    US Embassy in bogota doing interviews for Cuban

    Has anyone obtained the information as to what Colombia "Migración Colombia or the nearest Colombian embassy or consulate" requires to approve a visa for cuban citizen ? (ex. Bank account, cash on hand, ownership of property, etc.) I did find this site, https://colombia.visahq.com/requirements/cuba/ (Anyone find anything different ?) Colombia tourist visa is required for citizens of Cuba. Currently VisaHQ visa services are for residents of the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, UAE, India, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland and Singapore. Citizens of Cuba residing in Cuba must apply for a visa to Colombia in person at the nearest consulate of Colombia in Cuba. Please note, application procedures and fees may vary by location. If there is no consulate of Colombia in Cuba there may be a consulate of Colombia in a neighboring country that covers the jurisdiction of Cuba. While we cannot process your travel visa request, travelers should take note of the following advice: Check the current validity of your passport For international travel, all travelers will need a passport, valid for at least 90 days following your departure date. However, we strongly recommend traveling with six months validity on your passport at all times. It is also recommended that your valid passport have at least two un-used pages remaining, for any necessary entry and exit stamps that may be issued. It is also a good idea to review the number of pages and validity remaining your passport well in advance of overseas travel. This will allow for time needed if a replacement passport may be required. Use our Embassy Guide Here you can look up embassy and consular contact information. Our comprehensive database of worldwide embassy address and contact details can help you locate the nearest embassy to seek country-specific guidance pertaining to travel regulations. Still in need of more information? There is a good chance that you may find the answer within our frequently asked questions pages. This is a useful resource for anyone new to the travel visa or passport applications process.

Here you will find sound advice and up-to-date customs information for any destination country.
  2. I just got back from Havana yesterday, while there I visited several embassies to confirm whether my Cuban husband did or did not need a visa to visit. Guyana, Russia, and Dominica (not Dominican Republic) did NOT require visas. Now that I am back in the US, I too need to find out how to choose a different embassy for the interview. This is a hot mess.
  3. VeredAK, I feel your pain, this is heartbreaking. My situation is similar. We filed for the K1 and after 2 years was denied. We were married June 05,2017 and our paperwork is now still at the USCIS (5 months), waiting for NVC and embassy stages. I just got back from Cuba yesterday from a month visit with my husband. I also have medical issues and was denied expedite twice, even with a lot of documentation from my doctor which they wouldn't even let me submit. After 2 weeks you have to call them about your expedite and they will make a decision. I wish you luck and hope it works out for you. We are also now trying to get information to interview in another country. Does NVC automatically assign to another country or do we need to choose a country that he can either obtain a visa to OR a country where he does not need a visa like Dominica or Russia or Guyana? Anyone have any information about this?
