Indian passport holders traveling to Cuba from the States - do we need a visa? Will a tourist card suffice? Other things I need to take care of? Information available online is confusing.

Here is the information from TIMATIC as of today for someone with an Indian passport traveling to Cuba on a flight or ship from the US. This is the system that airline personnel check to ensure you have your immigration documents in order before allowing you to check in for your flight. It clearly indicates that Cuba will require a visa and does not indicate that it can be bought upon arrival, so I would expect you'd need to show it at check in. I don't know if there are implications upon return to the US if they notice you're arriving from Cuba - I would hope not but I don't know. Talk to an immigration lawyer if you have questions on that.

Personal crisis giving me a lot of anxiety and depression. Currently am in a long term relationship with someone, since high school. Am now 25. Recently, I realized I began to develop strong feelings for my best friend and they said they did too. We have more in common and have the same goals, etc. I hate that this happened because I do love the current person I am with. I have doubts about my current relationship, however I don’t have the courage or heart to end it. I don’t want to lose either.
