Travel to Cuba as an American tourist is still illegal for US citizens despite the handshake between President Obama and Cuban President, Raul Castro, to restore full diplomatic relations between Cuba and the US. Technically it’s never been illegal to travel to Cuba, it’s just been illegal to spend money in Cuba per 6 different pieces of federal legislation including the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917 and 5 other laws implemented to amend the economic and financial embargo between 1961 and 2000. US citizens must qualify in one of 12 categories to be licensed for Cuban travel including family visits, religious or educational activities, clinics, workshops, journalistic activity, and humanitarian projects.
