Journalists

Persons engaging in journalistic activities may either be authorized to travel to Cuba under either a general licene or request a specific license.

General License — persons regularly employed as journalists by a news reporting organization and persons regularly employed as supporting broadcast or technical personnel who travel to Cuba to engage in journalistic activities are authorized to travel to Cuba under a general license.

A "general license" is a provision in the U.S. regulations that, in and of itself, authorizes certain categories of travel to Cuba without having to apply for permission to the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, the agency that administers the U.S. travel regulations regarding Cuba.

Specific License — persons engaging in journalistic activities in Cuba for a free-lance journalistic project may seek for a specific license.

To obtain a specific license, application must be made to OFAC.

For more information, see the official U.S. regulations regarding travel to Cuba (the Cuban Assets Control Regulations — 31 C.F.R. Part 515), available at www.gpoaccess.gov/ecfr/.
