Travel to Cuba for All

Ending the Travel Ban and Embargo

While positive momentum is building toward the full restoration of diplomatic ties with Cuba, the travel ban and trade embargo still exist. Cuba is the only country in the world that the U.S. government prevents its citizens from visiting.

Travel is inherently educational and a human right. It is time for Congress to end the travel ban and lift the trade embargo.
