Statement from Marazul Tours on new U.S. regulations regarding travel to Cuba

Statement from Marazul Tours on new U.S. regulations regarding travel to Cuba

 

April 18, 2019

Yesterday, the Trump administration announced increased hostilities 
towards Cuba, including the strengthening of the inhumane and illegal 
Helms-Burton Act (concerning property that was nationalized after the 
revolution, as well as all lawsuits surrounding that) and the 
limitation on remittances. The European Union and Canada have already 
expressed their opposition to this policy, which, for the last 23 
years, had been waived by both democratic and republican 
administrations.

As of now, there has not been an official change to the regulations on 
travel to Cuba. While implied by Bolton and certainly by most news 
sources, the concrete changes have not yet been issued. As reported, 
Bolton said that non-family travel would be further 'restricted,' but 
he did not say prohibited, and he did not announce specific changes to 
any of the current categories. They also indicated that they would be 
adding to the restricted entities list, but the only entity mentioned 
was Aerogaviota.

It is not certain when the official regulations will be issued by OFAC 
(possibly May 2nd), but as always, we need to be careful about 
speculation and wait until the final regulations are out before coming 
to any conclusions. We are in constant contact with our attorneys and 
will keep you up to date, as always.

We condemn these newest attacks on both Cuba and on the freedom to 
travel of the American people. This hostile policy does not reflect 
the overwhelming sentiments of the people of this country and go to 
extreme and illogical lengths to hurt the people of Cuba.  In the face 
of these current scare tactics and hostilities, Marazul Tours remains 
committed to continuing to provide the bridge between the people of 
our two countries.
