Required Travel Documentationand Health Advisory

The following information is provided as a general guidance for UK Citizens, we recommend all nationalities verify their individual visa requirements with a visa service provider such as CIBT. Please visit their web site: https://cibtvisas.co.uk The information below is correct at time of printing and is subject to change at any time.

It is the responsibility of each guest to obtain appropriate Visas, Passports and Inoculations for their cruise.  Norwegian Cruise Line will provide information only, but be aware that individual countries have been known to change regulations without notice. Immunizations and health requirements vary by country.  As these may also change without notice, we suggest you consult with your local GP or NHS Direct or website http://www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk/home.aspx or http://travelhealthpro.org.uk

PLEASE NOTE:  In order to travel abroad, a valid passport is required for all Nationalities.  Most countries require that passports be valid for at least (6) months beyond the date of your return to your Country of Residence. Passports must have sufficient empty pages for visas that are required during the cruise. World Cruise travellers are recommended to have six (6) empty pages. Please obtain or renew your passports early.  

Please remember it is extremely important to secure your visa prior to arrival for embarkation. Guests who deviate their embarkation or disembarkation port from the scheduled itinerary should research the foreign entry requirements for that country. Regrettably, Norwegian Cruise Line will, due to government regulations, have to deny boarding to any guest who fails to have the appropriate visas, inoculations and travel documentation and we are not liable for any fines or other losses incurred as a result of your failure to comply with passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities. We regret we cannot accept any liability if you are refused entry onto any flight, cruise or into any country as a result of not having the correct passport and/or any required visa(s).

Important Information for Guests Cruising to Cuba:

Yes. OFAC regulates travel to Cuba pursuant to the Helms-Burton Act and other pertinent regulations. Currently, there are 12 categories of authorised travel to Cuba. Effective November 9, 2017, individual people-to-people exchanges are no longer authorised by OFAC. However, guests who booked their cruise before June 16, 2017 may choose to still engage in individual people-to-people travel or group people-to-people travel sponsored by Norwegian or a third party U.S. sponsoring organisation. Group people-to-people travel is one of the ways for Americans to visit Cuba and gives you an opportunity to discover Cuba through its people and from a local perspective. All guests will be required to certify that their activities meet the requirements above, so you must retain records of your activities whether or not they are offered by Norwegian for a period of 5 years. For additional information on group people-to-people exchanges, please refer to FAQ What is a group people-to-people exchange?.

Click here for the FAQs issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury that cover many of the questions directly related to regulations regarding travel to Cuba.

Yes. A valid passport* is required for all guests to travel to Cuba. We recommend guests review the passport requirements of travel to Cuba from their home country and that the expiration of your passport be greater than six months from the date of your voyage.
*NOTE: All guests must have a valid passport book for travel. A passport card WILL NOT be accepted.

All guests must complete a certification form which sets forth and confirms that they will be participating in OFAC-compliant activities.

Click here to link to the certification form. One per guest.
Certification must be received by Norwegian no later than 30 days prior to the departure date and may be sent by email to Customerservice@ncl.com. Please be advised that guests will not be able to board the vessel without having first completed the form.
All guests will be self-certifying which means that they are solely responsible for arranging a full-time timetable of OFAC-compliant activities, as explained above. These activities may include excursions provided by Norwegian or activities arranged by guests themselves.

All travellers to Cuba must be able to prove that their trip was comprised of OFAC-compliant activities. Guests should keep a log of their activities and keep the log for 5 years. Guests may also request that Norwegian keep a record of their itinerary and shore excursion activity if Norwegian is the U.S. sponsoring organisation providing any group people-to-people exchanges to the guest.

Yes. As with travellers from the United States, non-U.S. guests will need to certify that they are travelling under one of the approved OFAC categories, keep records of their activities and sign affidavits confirming they are doing so.

The Cuban government requires anyone who is travelling to Cuba on a passport other than a valid Cuban passport to obtain a visa prior to their arrival into Cuba. For all visitors who were not born in Cuba, this visa, also known as a "tourist card" (for U.S. residents, this visa also known as a "rosada" must have a pink and blue background; for non-U.S. residents, this visa is issued by the Cuban embassy or consulate in the background colour applicable to their country of residency), is required to enter Cuba for non-business purposes. The Cuban visa is valid for a single entry and allows the holder to stay in Cuba for 30 days. U.S. residents may obtain this visa (or "rosada") through Norwegian for a separate processing and procurement fee of or on your own. For non-U.S. residents, if the Cuban visa issued by the Cuban embassy or consulate in the background colour applicable to your country of residency is not accepted by Cuban immigration officials, you will be required to purchase the same Cuban visa (or "rosada") as a U.S. resident. Please note that you will not be allowed to board the vessel without proof of acquiring a Cuban visa.

The Cuban visa is a two-part card. Cuban immigration officials will take both parts upon arrival in Cuba.

Guests born in Cuba who emigrated before January 1, 1971 and reside in a country outside of Cuba are required to carry either (i) a valid Cuban passport with a habilitación (entry permit) and a valid prórroga (passport extension that must be obtained every two (2) years) or (ii) a valid passport from your country of citizenship along with an HE-11 visa obtained from the Cuban embassy or consulate in your country of residency (except in those cases where such country has entered into a visa exemption agreement with Cuba) for entry to and departure from Cuba. Effective January 1, 2018, Cuba will no longer require a habilitación (entry permit). The estimated processing time for an HE-11 visa is up to 60 days.

Guests born in Cuba who emigrated on or after January 1, 1971 and reside in a country outside of Cuba are required to carry a valid Cuban passport with a habilitación (entry permit) and valid prórroga (passport extension that must be obtained every two (2) years) for entry to and departure from Cuba. These guests do not need a Cuban visa. Effective January 1, 2018, Cuba will no longer require a habilitación (entry permit). The estimated processing time for a Cuban passport is up to 6 months.

Guests born in Cuba who require a visa or passport should contact the Cuban embassy or consulate in their country of residency.

OFAC Travel Sanctionsand Regulations

The United States Department of the Treasury through the Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") has issued a series of comprehensive sanctions against various countries, specifically:

  • Crimea
  • North Korea (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea)
  • Sudan
  • Syria
  • Iran

These sanctions limit the ability of cruise lines to conduct business with these countries and their citizens, which includes allowing certain citizens of those countries to sail onboard our ships. Accordingly, it is Norwegian's policy that if you are a citizen or resident of one of these sanctioned countries, we will be unable to accept your cruise reservation unless you can satisfy the following conditions:

  • Provide proof of citizenship in a non-sanctioned country; OR
  • Provide proof of residency in a non-sanctioned country AND evidence that you are funding the cruise, including all onboard charges, through a bank associated with a non-sanctioned country.
  • You must be able to satisfy all of the above criteria in order to sail onboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship.
