Department of Treasury: Sanctioned Countries

U.S. Department of Treasury Sanction Programs and Country Information
The Office of Foreign Assets Control administers and enforces economic sanctions programs primarily against countries and groups of individuals, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers. The sanctions can be either comprehensive or selective, using the blocking of assets and trade restrictions to accomplish foreign policy and national security goals. A number, but not all sanctioned countries are under a DOS Travel Warning. Travel for university related purposes to a sanctioned country requires consultation with UVA's Office of Export Controls.

Note: Cuba is a sanctioned country, and travel to Cuba remains highly regulated by both the U.S. and Cuban governments. Students planning travel to Cuba for university related purposes that is not part of an approved study abroad program should contact Catarina Krizancic in the International Studies Office,, at least 12 weeks prior to the planned departure date.
