Can I go to Cuba?

My fiance was born in Havana Cuba in 1979. He came to America with his parents in 1983. HE'S A LEGAL CITIZEN OF THE US [just putting it out there]. I know he visits family once every 3 years in Cuba, but we're expecting a baby and I'd love to meet my fiance's family and show them our child since they are not aloud to leave Cuba under law to come to the US.

I was born in Secaucus, New jersey...born and raised all [AWL] american. Irish Scottish and adopted by italians lol.

Am i legaly aloud to travel to Cuba when I'm married to a Cuban?

I know it's illegal for US citizens to spend money IN cuba. but can we actually go visit if we're not blood related to anyone?

I been googling and Im just so confused

  • So, it looks like you can go under a general license:

    Persons visiting a close relative (any individual related to a person by blood, marriage, or adoption who is no more than three generations removed from that person or from a common ancestor with that person) who is a national of Cuba, and persons traveling with them who share a common dwelling as a family with them. There is no limit on the duration or frequency of such travel. (According to the Cuban Assets Control Regulations, third country nationals who reside in Cuba are considered Cuban nationals.)

  • You need to go to Mexico first, my husband and I took a day trip to Cuba from Cancun, you can't fly to Cuba (or take a boat) from the US>

  • It is legal for you to do it,, you could also go to Canada,, Americans can visit Cuba, but BECAUSE of restrictions, there are no US carriers that will take you directly from the US to Cuba, it isn't against the law for you to go, via Canada or Mexico.

  • How does he go every 3 years to visit? I assume he has to go to Mexico or Canada.

  • Also, the website (clicky) mentions that you'll need non-American insurance which you can purchase in Cuba
