IMPORTANT ISSUES:

*What changes did the current administration enact related to Cuba travel?

The current administration cancelled the popular individual self-directed general license category of people-to-people travel that was part of Obama's administration.

Fortunately, they did not cancel people-to-people travel sponsored by authorized US tour operators. Americans can visit Cuba with family or friends on private or public tours if arranged by an authorized US-based tour operator and employs a representative of an authorized US-based tour operator to accompany the group for the duration of the tour.

**Please note - The situation in Cuba is changing rapidly. Patience and flexibility are key.
