On Friday, June 16, 2017, President Trump announced a change in policy affecting the parameters under which US residents are able to travel to Cuba. The new regulations make it impossible for Americans to travel to Cuba independently. Instead, they must travel with an organization that is authorized to operate Professional research exchanges and “people-to-people” educational trips to Cuba.
Academic Travel Abroad is highly experienced with Professional Research exchanges and people-to-people trips. You have our assurance that we will remain in full compliance with new regulations. We do not foresee any interruption to our Cuba programs. We look forward to operating all trips with our usual impeccable standards, creative approach, and focus on engagement.
Now is the time to travel to Cuba! While the door to this exciting destination may have closed slightly, it is still very much open and we encourage you to join us on what is sure to be an enlightening journey.
