Your program will be prepared under a general license for “support for the Cuban people” per Cuba Assets Control Regulations, 31 CFR Part 515 administered by the Dept. of Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Controls, and will be prepared in accordance with said regulations.

NOTE: On June 4, 2019, the Trump administration rescinded the “people to people” educational exchange license. However, every U.S. citizen can still legally travel to Cuba, pre-approved, under the “support for the Cuban people” license.


“Chris, what can I say? The trip was spectacular. We all thoroughly enjoyed your company.”
