U.S. coordinates further action against Cuba


On 5 June 2019 the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and the U.S. Department of State take coordinated actions against Cuba. OFAC amends the Cuban Assets Control Regulations (31 C.F.R. part 515; CACR), changing non-family travel to Cuba by removing authorization for group people-to-people educational travel. BIS removes authorization for the export or reexport to Cuba of most non-commercial aircraft and passenger and recreational vessels on temporary visits in the “License Exception Aircraft, Vessels and Spacecraft” (AVS), found in the Export Administration Regulations (EAR).
