Who can receive money in Cuba?

Family remittances:

You can easily send money to family members related by blood, marriage, or adoption. The sender and receiver don’t need to have the same last name. This includes:

  • - Children, stepchildren, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren
  • - Parents, stepparents, grandparents, and great-grandparents
  • - Spouses, brothers/sisters-in-law, fathers/mothers-in-law, spouses' parents and grandparents
  • - Brothers/sisters, nephews/nieces
  • - Uncles/aunts, cousins, and second cousins

Emigration remittances:

Pre-visa: Up to $1,000 may be sent before the receiver has obtained a US State Department visa to help cover the receiver's preliminary emigration expenses.

Post-visa: After the receiver has obtained a US State Department visa, an additional $1,000 may be sent to help the receiver emigrate from Cuba to the US. Often there are charges associated with emigration, such as plane tickets, exit payments, third-country taxes, and other trip-related charges.
