And of course the Cuban government’s the only one selling you the insurance, if you’re enough of a chump to indulge in some tourism in the island prison:
Cuba Visitors Must Have Travel Health Insurance
Cuba has quietly begun requiring foreign tourists and Cubans who live overseas to hold travel insurance approved by island authorities, while making those who don’t have coverage buy a local policy that can cost over $3 a day.
The new law took effect Saturday and mandates that travelers who can’t show they have authorized insurance buy a policy from state-run Cubatur before being allowed into the country.
A Cubatur kiosk at Havana’s airport sold 113 policies on the first day alone, Ricardo Lopez, a Cubatur office manager, said Monday.
The measure was made law in February, but there had been no mention of how it would be implemented. A government spokeswoman said officials were still waiting for details Friday night, hours before the law took effect.
They don’t know what they’re selling, but they’ll take your money anyway.
