Registry of Importers and Exporters
From the reordering of Cuban foreign trade, the number of organizations empowered to carry out export and import activities increased significantly, making it necessary to create a Registry of Exporters and Importers attached to the Chamber of Commerce of the Republic of Cuba. The Registry of Importers and / or Exporters was created by Resolution no. 153 of 1994 of the Minister of Foreign Trade. All entities located in the country authorized to carry out export, import or both are required to register in the Registry.
Branches and Representation Agents of Foreign Companies
The modifications taking place in the Cuban foreign trade as a result of the measures adopted for the economic development of the country, as well as the experience gathered over several years, advised in 2006 to adapt the current legal regulations related to the National Registry of Foreign Representations to the conditions prevailing at that time, as well as the terms and practices of international use. The Council of Ministers, in use of the powers conferred on it by Article 98, subsection k), of the Constitution of the Republic of Cuba, resolved to issue the Regulations for the National Registry of Branches and Agents of Companies. The National Registry of Foreign Representations was renamed the National Registry of Branches and Agents of Foreign Commercial Companies, attached to the Chamber of Commerce of the Republic of Cuba.
Travel Agencies Registry
The National Registry of Travel Agencies was created under Joint Resolution no. 1 of 1995 of the Ministries of Foreign Trade and Tourism, and ratified by Joint Resolution no. 1 of 1998, also from both ministries. The Registry has a person in charge authorized to issue the background certifications that exist in the files in its custody and attest to the officiality of the establishment of travel agencies. It is mandatory to register for national travel agencies. Branches of foreign travel agencies and representation contracts of foreign travel agencies are also entered in this Registry.
