Recently, the Central Bank of Cuba (BCC) issued a resolution that prevents transfers abroad from the Cuban peso account of embassies and consulates.
The BCC also established that in the accounts in Cuban pesos of the embassies and consulates, cash deposits of freely convertible currency are admitted, except US dollars, for consular collections, if so determined by the holder. In these cases, the bank credits the account in Cuban pesos applying the current exchange rate on the day of the operation.
This regulation has led to diplomatic headquarters such as Panama, Ecuador and Mexico to suspend their consular services that require payment.
At the end of last May, the Spanish government eliminated the restriction due to COVID-19 imposed on residents of Cuba who wished to apply for tourist visas to travel to this European country.
“Cubans who wish to travel to Spain for family visits, commercial, cultural, sports, tourist trips, airport transits, etc., do not require CEFRONT (National Center for the Coordination of Border Posts) authorization from this moment on. Its processing is free and is subject to reservation of appointment, “reported the authorities.
