The Catholic University of America

Assistant Vice President for Global Education

Trading with the Enemy Act

(amended by the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961)

12 USC 95a  and 22 USC Part 79; 31 CFR Part 500

Assets Control Regulations of the U.S. Department of Treasury require persons subject to U.S. jurisdiction to have a license to engage in certain transactions related to travel to, from and within regulated countries.  Failure to follow proper procedures may result in civil penalties and criminal prosecution. Additional information can be obtained from the Department of Treasury Web Page on Sanctions Program and Country Summary.

The AVP for Global Education has general oversight for compliance with this law, and for ensuring that those on the Academic Side of the University are aware of restrictions.

See the NAFSA page for updates on Academic Travel to Cuba. New regulations were published on Jan. 28, 2011. There is a NAFSA practice advisory May 2011 stating what is required under a General License which is much less strict than the specific license that used to be required.
