Eliminating Individual Travel, Keeping Group Travel
The Trump Administration recently announced changes to U.S. Cuba travel policy. Under the Obama administration, rules were relaxed allowing individuals to visit the island in compliance with 12 categories of travel without applying to Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) for a specific license. President Trump’s policy change intends to cease giving permission for individual travel, returning the people-to-people designation to its original purpose – for guided groups only. CITA has always provided and will continue to provide people-to-people itineraries that are compliant with U.S. government regulations.
Group travel to Cuba is still authorized and commercial flights are not terminated. For more information, please review the OFAC’s Cuba FAQs document.
CITA is working with OFAC to stay on top of the changes ensuring all our incentive trips meet legal guidelines. Subscribe to our newsletter for regular updates on Cuba incentive travel news and FAM opportunities.
