Europe And Cuba Visitors Require Proof of Travel Medical Insurance

Cuba

Anyone entering Cuba is required to disclose that they have health insurance at immigration when entering the country. If you do not have coverage, you will be required to purchase their government product at the time of your arrival. Prior to departure, please double-check your policy to ensure it does not exclude Cuba.

Europe

Canadians travelling to Europe are urged to carry proof of supplemental health insurance. According to the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT), Belarus, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine specifically request Canadian citizens be prepared to - in some cases required to - show proof of medical coverage while visiting.
