Statement on Cuba from Terry Dale, president & CEO, USTOA

Published on : Friday, November 10, 2017

ustoaToday, the Department of State, Department of Commerce, and Department of the Treasury formally released new regulations tightening restrictions for travel and trade between the United States and Cuba. Although these regulations have restricted some opportunities for Americans travel to Cuba, it’s important to remember that Cuba remains open for business.

 
Since its inception more than 40 years ago, the United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA) has supported an open borders policy and will continue to advocate for the growth of the travel and tourism industry inside and outside of the United States. These new regulations are counter to USTOA’s core belief in freedom of travel for Americans.

 

The industry will adjust how it does business under the new rules, and we will continue to clarify and comply.

 
Moving forward, Americans can continue to travel to Cuba through a licensed U.S. tour operator.
