I’am an American Citizen born in Cuba. I left Cuba in 1961 and have never been back.

Now at 57 years old, I would like to visit without having to go thru a 3rd country. I have cousins and one living Aunt in Cuba but I don’t know their names or where they live. I called Marazul travel in Miami and was told I did not qualify to travel under the new guidelines.

Is this right ??

Thanks

If Marazul won’t sell you a ticket then your opportunities are limited.

Here is the list of qualified OFAC-approved Cuba travel service providers.

Dear Gator,

Yes, you do qualify to travel, however, you’ll need the names and addresses of your family members in order for Marazul, or any other service provider, to process your request.

Thanks Anatasio

I’m trying to find that information now.  My aunt still lives in the same town I believe. I haven’t seen or heard from her in 48 years. I know she is still alive according to my Mom.
