General licenses may be issued by OFAC to travelers involved in educational activities under the auspices of an organization that sponsors and organizes such programs to promote people-to-people contact but are not involved in academic study pursuant to a degree program.

People-to-People can be a complex process; educate yourself with OFAC’s position. Learn more about the People-to-People program here to see if your interest or reason for traveling to Cuba applies.

Policy and procedures regarding Cuba are subject to change. Make sure you are constantly monitoring travel requirements leading up to your travel date. It is the traveler’s responsibility to ensure that all necessary documentation and requirements are in accordance with U.S. policies.
