United States Entry Requirements:

Travellers must apply online for authorisation under the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA).  A fee does apply of $21 per person.

Apply online  - ESTA link
Be very careful and be sure to use this link to the genuine ESTA site.  There are many websites out there that will charge exorbitant fees for the service, it is not necessary and should cost no more than the current ESTA charge.  

*See note below if you have been to Cuba since 2021.  

Canada Entry Requirements:

Overseas nationals arriving into Canada by air require an eTA  which costs CAD$7 per person.

Apply online - Canada eTA link
Again, make sure you use this link to get to government site.

The U.S. Department of State designated Cuba as a State Sponsor of Terrorism on January 12, 2021.
