We ask our travelers to tell of their experience passing through border security on their return to the U.S. after visiting Cuba. The comments below are from real travelers who have visited Cuba. Were they asked questions by the immigration official, and if so, which questions? Were they asked to show paperwork? What was the reaction by the immigration official?

When returning to the U.S. you need to have your trip itinerary, travel affidavit, trip diary, and know the name of the license category of your legal trip to Cuba. See more about how to make a legal trip to Cuba

I was kind of afraid to come across with immigration on my return, thats why I bought air tickets through Mexico city so on my return it could look that my destination was Mexico but not Cuba as I did not want those immigration questions. But it was my approach to visit Cuba and I was not asked about anything as it was looked that I did fly from Mexico.
