US Coast Guard Removes Conditions Of Entry On Vessels Arriving From Cuba

USCG logoFollowing a comprehensive assessment, the United States Coast Guard has determined that Cuba meets the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code requirements established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and has effective security measures in their ports. Vessels arriving to the U.S. are no longer required to employ additional security measures while in Cuban ports.

Conditions of Entry related to Cuban ports were originally imposed in 2008.

All U.S. immigration policies remain unchanged and the Office of Foreign Assets Control travel restrictions remain in effect. Furthermore, the governing regulations titled “Unauthorized Entry to Cuba” contained in 33 CFR 107.200 also remain in effect.
