This application is submitted to renew the information collection authority pertaining to the Cuban Assets Control Regulations set forth in 31 CFR part 515 (the “Regulations”). The Regulations are implemented pursuant to the Trading with the Enemy Act (50 U.S.C. 4301-4341) and other applicable authorities. OFAC has amended the Regulations on numerous occasions, most recently in June 2022. Currently, persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction are authorized by general license to engage in travel-related transactions involving Cuba within the 12 existing travel categories in the Regulations. OFAC may authorize by specific license travel-related transactions that do not fall within the scope of an existing general license. In addition, persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction, including travel agents, airlines, and vessel operators, are generally authorized to provide travel and carrier services in connection with travel-related transactions authorized by the Regulations. See 31 CFR § 515.572(a)(1) and (2).

Miscellaneous Actions
Travel to Cuba also declined sharply in the spring of 2020, with the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, OFAC estimates that over the next three years travel to Cuba will rebound. This estimate is based in part on June 2022 changes to the Regulations that ease restrictions on authorized academic activities and resume authorization for professional meetings and conferences and for group people-to-people educational travel. As the pandemic subsides, some travelers who have postponed trips to Cuba will be more likely to take such trips in the coming years.
