While people-to-people exchanges, as defined by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), have officially come to an end, travel to Cuba is still a possibility.

The United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) laid out the new policy in a statement from president and CEO Terry Dale on June 4, 2019.

The new amendment removes the authorization for group people-to-people educational travel, which previously allowed Americans the ability to travel to Cuba with a licensed tour operator on an approved program.
