Important: Please, be aware that IS Havana will never ask or require teacher candidates to send money for either application fees, interview fees, visas, plane tickets or other costs associated with recruitment or moving to Cuba. We will not ask teacher candidates for information related to their personal bank accounts. If you appear to be asked by IS Havana to send money to cover any such or similar costs, you are probably the target of an elaborate scam. Several international schools have recently had their web sites cloned, and candidates have been asked to send large amounts of money. All international candidates are urged to be diligent in investigating potential schools and to use extreme caution during the recruiting process and prior to signing a contract.
