YES!!!! It is possible to travel to Cuba as a US Citizen. The new US Treasury Department guidelines issued on November 8, 2017 for OFAC Educational and People to People state, “1) All People-to-People nonacademic educational travel be conducted under the auspices of an organization that is subject to US Jurisdiction and that sponsors such exchange to promote people-to-people contract and 2) such travelers be accompanied by a person subject to US jurisdiction who is a representative of the sponsoring organization. Individual People-to-People nonacademic education all travel will no longer be authorized.”
What does this mean for me????
These new guidelines mean that you may travel to Cuba under the People-to-People Travel Category legally through a licensed US agency like Sea to See Travel LLC. We provide full custom itineraries to ensure that you are in full compliance with all OFAC Educational and People to People regulations.
