Qualifications

To Travel To Cuba



Persons visiting "close relatives" who are neither Cuban nationals nor U.S. government employees assigned to the U.S. Interests Section in Havana

Persons visiting a "close relative" who is neither a national of Cuba, nor a U.S. Government employee assigned to the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, and persons traveling with them who share a common dwelling as a family with them, may request a specific license to travel to Cuba.

A "close relative" is any individual related to a person by blood, marriage, or adoption who is no more than three generations removed from that person or from a common ancestor with that person.

For example, your mother's first cousin is your close relative, because you are both no more than three generations removed from your great-grandparents, who are the ancestors you have in common.

Similarly, your husband's great-grandson is your close relative, because he is no more than three generations removed from your husband.

Your daughter's father-in-law is not your close relative, because you have no common ancestor.

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/.
