Travel to Embargoed Countries
The Department of the Treasury, through its Office of Foreign Asset Control, administers economic and trade sanctions that at times can restrict or require licensing in order to travel to a foreign country, or conduct business with a foreign entity or individual. Before considering travel to conduct research or educational activities to embargoed countries, check first with the campus Export Control Administrator Marci Copeland. A general license for Cuba may cover you; however, other countries can require a specific license that may take several weeks to obtain.
Please reference OFAC's Sanctions Program and Country Summaries for the most current list of embargoed countries and U. S. sanctions.
