On June 4th, 2019, the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) issued updated guidelines on the regulations regarding travel to Cuba. Two changes were made:
- The People-to-People category was eliminated as a category of travel, leaving 11 other remaining categories. Any U.S. citizen who has made at least one travel related transaction in preparation for their trip (flight or lodging reservations) is exempted from the rule change and is allowed to travel under the previous rules.
- Cruise ships and other maritime vessels are no longer allowed to dock at Cuban ports.
