My travel agent buddy, John Dekker from Surf City Travel, just sent me this email that he received:

“Dear travel agent,

I have the pleasure to inform you that we can start to sell tickets from USA to Cuba. On the following link you’ll find all the information: http://aeromexico.com/en/travel-with-aeromexico/destinations/central-america/havana/?site=us&Camp=Carrousel&Slot=1.

The link then brings you to a page with this info:

U.S. travelers: prepare your form for travel to Cuba

The following special rules apply only to people subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, which includes:

  • United States citizens
  • United States residents
  • Persons who purchase their ticket to Cuba while physically in the United States
  • Persons who began their travel to Cuba from the United States

If you fall into one of the above categories, you must submit a form to Aeromexico personnel at the gate of the flight to Cuba. On the form you certify that you are authorized to travel to Cuba either

  • under one of the 12 sections of the OFAC Cuban Asset Control Regulations,
  • as a close relative visiting a traveler who is authorized under one of the 12 sections of the OFAC Cuban Asset Control Regulations
  • under a specific OFAC license

You are entirely responsible for the declaration that you make on the form. Aeromexico cannot and does not verify your eligibility to travel to travel to Cuba other than ensuring that you make a declaration on the form, sign it and turn it in to us. Aeromexico retains the forms in case of any potential audit by the U.S. government.

Forms are available at the gates of flights to Cuba in Mexico City and Cancun airports, or you may download the form as a PDF file, print it, and bring it to the gate.

Looks like it’s getting easier and easier for Americans to travel to Cuba. Might be time for me to book a trip!

    It’s a pity that the process is still so complicated, but with the recent developments between Cuba and the US, it’s inevitable that tourism will happen eventually.

    Hey there. I am wondering if you’d need to present a round trip ticket to Aeromexico when flying to Cuba. My plan is to go from there to Europe, and to purchase that in Cuba.

      Good question. I’m not sure but you could buy a refundable return ticket and then cancel it if your plans change.
