Crown International Travel has been an OFAC-Licensed Travel Service Provider (TSP) from 2001-2015 when OFAC replaced the TSP program with a general license.  We have planned and implemented hundreds of Cuba travel programs for groups and individuals over the past 16 years and continue to do so in a dynamic and growing market.  We specialize in providing cultural and educational programs that are customized to each client's need.  Please read the following paragraphs to learn about what types of travel are permitted under the general license categories.

Although the rules for US Citizens traveling to Cuba have been amended and are more relaxed than ever, one important thing to remember: The approved categories and rules on traveling to Cuba have NOT changed.


It is important to note the following statement from the OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control).

For all of the approved 12 Categories:  The traveler’s schedule of activities must not include free time or recreation in excess of that consistent with a full-time schedule. An entire group does not qualify for the general license merely because some members of the group qualify individually.

Below is a list of the 12 approved Categories for US Citizens entry into Cuba:  

  1. Family visits
  2. Humanitarian projects or to provide support to the Cuban people
  3. Official business of the U.S. Government, foreign governments and certain intergovernmental organizations
  4. Journalistic activities
  5. Professional research or meetings
  6. Educational activities by persons at academic institutions
  7. People to people travel
  8. Religious activities
  9. Public performance, clinics, workshops, athletic or other competitions and exhibitions
  10. Authorization to provide travel services, carrier services and remittance forwarding services
