Cuban Naturalization Certificates

Certificados Literal de Ciudadania

We can no longer retrieve Naturalization certificates.

In most cases, we can retrieve naturalization certificates from Cuba from any province going back to the 1800s.

If you are applying for Spanish Nationality, you may need this document from Cuba.

Please review our proprietary Cuban document retrieval process along with the cost for our service.

MINREX, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Cuba offers this clarification regarding citizenship vs naturalization. 

  • A person who is born in Cuba is a citizen by birth and would receive a certificate of citizenship (certificado de cuidadania).
  • A person who moves to Cuba and becomes a naturalized person renouncing their foreign citizenship in order to obtain Cuban citizenship will receive a letter of citizenship (carta de cuidadania)

Ese documento se denomina Certificado de Nacionalidad en los casos de cubanos por nacimiento, y Carta de Ciudadanía en los de naturalización.
