Is it legal to travel to Cuba?

U.S. citizens and residents are only permitted to travel to Cuba for one of 12 authorized reasons. They are:

– family visits
– official business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizations
– journalistic activity
– professional research and professional meetings
– educational activities
– religious activities
– public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitions
– support for the Cuban people
– humanitarian projects
– activities of private foundations or research or educational institutes
– exportation, importation, or transmission of information or information materials
– certain authorized export transactions

The good news is that if you fit into one of these categories, you qualify under a “general license” and no longer need a “specific license” issued by the U.S. government. You can book your flight on and, before you complete your purchase, we’ll ask you to specify which of the 12 reasons applies.
