Changes to Cuba Embargo Published in Today's Federal Register

Today's edition of the Federal Register contains the final rules making the changes to the U.S. embargo on Cuba announced last week by the Departments of Treasury and Commerce.

  • The PDF version of the changes made to OFAC's Cuban Assets Control Regulations can be found here.
  • The PDF version of the Changes to the Commerce Department's Export Administration Regulations modifying the rules on certain exports to Cuba can be found here.
Summaries of the various changes made to the U.S. embargo on Cuba can be found here (OFAC) and here (BIS).

Despite these changes, there are still significant restrictions on exports, reexports and travel to Cuba. For example, all sales of U.S. telecommunications, agricultural or medical products exported or re-exported to Cuba pursuant to the recent changes must be authorized or licensed by BIS. In addition, nearly all travel to Cuba, including for educational and humanitarian purposes, still requires a specific license to be issued by OFAC before such travel occurs. In addition, all authorized travel to Cuba must be arranged and provided by OFAC authorized providers of air and travel services.
