Cuba Permit Application Process

A vessel of the United States requires a permit from the United States Coast Guard to enter Cuban territorial waters (33 C.F.R. 107).  The attached form (CG-3300) must be submitted with complete information before a permit is granted.  Although the form has an expired date, the authorization to use it has been reinstated.  Paragraph four of the form requests Department of Treasury, Office of

Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) and Department of Commerce licenses.  If either license is not required, or a general license applies, please include a written certification explaining the situation. 

ALL COMPLETED APPLICATIONS SHOULD BE EMAILED TO or Fax to 305-415-6791 or call .305-415-6820.

Also, please allow a minimum of 2 weeks for approval and processing of the permit.

Also, please review and ensure compliance with the attached document for Requirements for Vessels Returning from Cuba.  This outlines specific requirements for recreational mariners to contact both the U.S. Coast Guard and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) upon their return to the United States.  Failure to comply may result in delay or denial of entry into the United states.
