You are getting two distinct and separate issues confused.

The visa card is issued by the Cuban government, and it is only collected/processed when you enter and leave Cuba. Look at it as a combined entry/exit/visa fee + information card.

The other piece is declaring your purpose of travel to the US government. That's nothing to do with the Cuban visa card.

If you buy a ticket now, who knows if the airline will stop service by February due to a fall off in bookings. In such a case, you could flout the embargo by travelling via a third country.
