View Client Update
On January 16, 2015, the United States implemented measures to ease its ongoing embargo of Cuba.
The changes expand the scope of permitted activities, including certain transactions related to travel and telecommunications.
The changes also eliminate the requirement of government preapproval for certain activities that were previously licensable.
The core trade embargo remains in place, and most transactions between persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction and nationals of Cuba remain prohibited.
