Cuba trips for everybody!


Specific Cuba Travel License from OFAC

Official US government granted permission to travel to Cuba

Check out our Cuba Trips Calendar for more information on legal trips to Cuba.

Let us help you plan your legal trip to Cuba.

The Office of Foreign Assets Control is operated by the US Treasury and grants Specific licenses to corporations, individuals and non-profit organizations for educational, cultural, religious, humanitarian and other reasons for Cuba travel related activities.

As the title of the license suggests, you must have a specific Cuba related travel request in order to be granted a Specific license from OFAC. If you are allowed to travel to Cuba, you can engage with Travel Service Providers or Carrier Service Providers in order to arrange for travel to Cuba. If you can book your own flights to Cuba or want to research the flight schedules offered by Carrier Service Providers, we have put together a Charter Flights to Cuba page.

New Cuba travel guidelines from OFAC were published on April 19, 2011 so more Americans can now travel under a General license but if you do not qualify to travel under a General license, then you can apply for an OFAC Travel License yourself by sending an application to OFAC. Specific licenses can also be obtained for workshops, clinics, performances and sports program.

New "people to people" licenses are being issued by OFAC for purposeful travel to Cuba. You can see an actual people to people Cuba travel license here.

While in Cuba, only three Cuba travel related agencies can offer assistance to Americans while in Cuba:

When you arrive back in the US from Cuba, you must possess a copy of the Specific License and a letter from the license holder acknowledging your association with the license holder.

If you do cannot obtain a Specific license or travel under a General license, you may want to inquire about a Cuba trip with a host and travel under their license.
