Cuban Foreign Ministry recognizes “exponential growth” of requests for legalization of documents

He Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba (Minrex) assured this Friday that “it works uninterruptedly” and in coordination with “the rest of the entities involved in the process of legalization of documents” to respond to “the growing demand for this service”.

Ernesto Soberón, General Director of Consular Affairs and Cuban Residents Abroad of the Foreign Ministry, confirmed on his Twitter account that there has been an “exponential growth” of these requests, which reach “a 16% increase in legalizations made, with respect to the same period of the previous year.

Given this “significant increase”, the diplomat asserted that the Minrex “adopts the necessary measures to respond to the increase in demand.”

However, he acknowledged that “the time for the legalization of the documents is longer than usual”, although he did not offer details in this regard.

According to Soberón, the island’s Foreign Ministry guarantees “all the necessary material resources to carry out the entire process.”

The official said that those who have initiated this type of procedure can find out the status of the process through the enabled web portal (, contact by phone 78310057 or write an email to the address [email protected]

This communication from Minrex occurs at a time when there are numerous complaints from the population about the slowness of the process, in the midst of a growing migratory flow.

Through social networks, many Cubans have commented that the documents take months to be legalized and then returned to the applicants to complete the process. The delay is even greater for those who reside outside of Havana.

At the beginning of this month, Soberón himself denied Rumors on Twitter about the supposed decision of the Minrex to stop the legalizations, something that would affect thousands of Cubans.

The increase in applications has been linked to the increase in the migration of Cubans abroad. This is associated, among other causes, with the implementation by the United States of the new humanitarian parole program and the approval in Spain of the Democratic Memory Lawwhich opens access to Spanish citizenship to descendants of people originating from that country.
