American travelers and Cuba

November 18, 2012

Here is what the State Department says about travel to Cuba:

"The U.S. Department of the Treasury enforces the Cuban Assets Control

Regulations, which apply to all U.S. citizens and permanent residents

wherever they are located, all people and organizations physically

located in the United States, and branches and subsidiaries of U.S.

organizations throughout the world. The regulations require that persons

subject to U.S. jurisdiction be licensed in order to engage in any

travel-related transactions pursuant to travel to, from, and within

Cuba. Transactions related to travel for tourist activities are not

licensable. This restriction also prohibits tourist travel to Cuba from

or through a third country such as Mexico or Canada. U.S. law

enforcement authorities enforce these regulations at U.S. airports and

pre-clearance facilities in third countries. Travelers who fail to

comply with Department of the Treasury regulations could face civil

penalties and criminal prosecution upon return to the United States."

The State Deparment also notes that "general licenses are granted to the

following categories of travelers, who are permitted to spend money to

travel to Cuba and to engage in other transactions directly incident to

the purpose of their travel, without the need to obtain a specific

license from the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign

Assets Control," including those visiting close relatives; journalists;

official government travelers on official business; religious

organizations. See http://www.travel.state.gov for more exceptions.
