OFAC Unveils New Web-Based Cuba Travel Licensing System
The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Controls (OFAC) has unveiled a new web-based system for the submission of applications to engage in permissible and licensable Cuba travel-related transactions, such as those involving religious activities, educational activities, professional research, meeting attendance, agriculture and medical sales and humanitarian projects in Cuba.
Using OFAC's new Cuba Travel website, an applicant can apply for a new license, request an extension or renewal of an existing license or request an amendment to an existing license. Applicants can either submit the completed form online or print the form to be signed and mailed to OFAC.
This is OFAC's second web-based license application system. OFAC's other web-based system is called "FAST Request" for use by individuals to apply for a specific license to visit a member of their immediate family in Cuba.
We look forward to OFAC continuing their web-based license applications to include other types of specific license requests, including requests for Ag-Med licenses and other types of specific licenses commonly submitted by companies and counsel.
