Havana, Dec 28 (Prensa Latina) Cuba on Wednesday reiterated the validity of the extension, automatic and free of charge, of the uninterrupted stay of its nationals abroad beyond 24 months, without implying the loss of the resident status.

On his Twitter profile, the general director of Consular Affairs and Cuban Residents Abroad at the Cuban Foreign Ministry, Ernesto Soberón, pointed out that this permit will be maintained until further notice.

He added that the possibility of returning to Cuba, exceptionally and for once, with an expired and unextended passport, for Cuban residents who were abroad on March 19, 2020, and have not yet returned to Cuba, is also maintained, the official added on that social network.

Cuba’s immigration law considers that a citizen has emigrated when he travels abroad for private business and remains uninterruptedly for more than 24 months without the corresponding authorization, or resides abroad without complying with current regulations.

This extension, announced by the Cuban Government in October 2020, was part of the provisions adopted based on the attention to compatriots who are abroad during the Covid-19 pandemic.
