Cuba Travel

Sanctions Requirements

Travel to Cuba is regulated by the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). Faculty, staff, and students wishing to visit Cuba must consult the University’s Export Controls Officer and Designated Cuba Representative, who will assist in determining whether a specific license from OFAC is required and in obtaining one as appropriate.

The University’s Export Controls Officer and Designated Cuba Representative can also answer any questions or concerns regarding export controls which may apply to your travel to Cuba.

Note: The use of Duo is restricted in U.S. embargoed countries and may impact your ability to access University technology and resources from abroad.
