    Treasury, Commerce, and State Implement Changes to the Cuba Sanctions Rules


    11/8/2017

    Amendments Implement President Trump's June 2017 National Security Presidential Memorandum (NSPM) Strengthening the Policy of the United States Toward Cuba

    WASHINGTON – The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and the Department of Commerce's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) are announcing amendments to the Cuban Assets Control Regulations (CACR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR), respectively, to implement changes to the Cuba sanctions program announced by the President in June.  The State Department is taking complementary steps to implement these policy changes that cumulatively seek to channel economic activities away from the Cuban military, intelligence, and security services, while maintaining opportunities for Americans to engage in authorized travel to Cuba and support the private, small business sector in Cuba.  The changes took effect on Thursday, November 9, 2017, when the regulations were published in the Federal Register. 

    People-to-People Travel 
                                                                                 

    • In accordance with the NSPM, OFAC is requiring that (1) all people-to-people nonacademic educational travel be conducted under the auspices of an organization that is subject to U.S. jurisdiction and that sponsors such exchanges to promote people-to-people contact, and (2) such travelers be accompanied by a person subject to U.S. jurisdiction who is a representative of the sponsoring organization.  Individual people-to-people nonacademic educational travel will no longer be authorized as announced by the President.​

     

    Renting a room in a private Cuban residence (casa particular), eating at privately owned Cuban restaurants (paladares), and shopping at privately owned stores run by self-employed Cubans (cuentapropistas) are examples of authorized activities.  In order to meet the requirement of a full-time schedule, a traveler must engage in additional authorized Support for the Cuban People activities. 

     

    Our tours comply with all of these expectations
