Relocating to and living in Cuba necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Cuban expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Cuba: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Cuban income tax law?ʺ, ʺWhat is the economic reality of life in Cuba today for the average expat and the average Cuban?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Havana?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Cuban residence permit for my wife?ʺ

Looking for so much information on working and living in Cuba is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time.
