Recharging is helping. Recharges connect Cubans living on the island with the rest of the world.

With the recharge, you turn your money into phone calls, text messages or even mobile data, benefiting your family and friends in Cuba. This way, you allow them to be in touch with you anytime they want to or need to.

Who can purchase a recharge?

Anyone outside of Cuba, as long as they have access to the Internet and an electronic payment method to make the transaction.

That form of payment can be a credit or debit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discovery, American Express), a PayPal account or Prepaid cards.

Recharge options

There are simple recharges, which you can do every day. Although it is best to take advantage of promotions, which last 5 or 6 days and are usually available up to twice a month. The time interval, as well as the terms and conditions of the promotion in general, is determined by ETECSA.

In addition, now, from abroad, you can buy combined plans that include: data (for all networks), minutes for national and international calls and SMS. Find out all the details here

How can I check if my recharge has successfully arrived?

In order to know that, the receiver in Cuba must know these two codes:

Dial *222# for the main balance of the account.

Dial *222*266# for the bonus.
