Title: OFAC Form “Request for a Specific License to Visit an Immediate Family Member in Cuba who is a National of Cuba once in a three year period.”
Agency Form Number: TD-F 90-22 60 and TD-F 90-22 60 (SP).Start Printed Page 37532
OMB Number: 1505-0202.
Abstract: OFAC issues specific licenses authorizing travel-related transactions incident to visits to members of a person's immediate family who are nationals of Cuba once per three-year period and for no more than 14 days. In order to ensure that the one-trip-per-three-year-period and other requirements are not violated, OFAC uses forms TD-F 90-22 60 and TD-F 90-22 60 (SP) to collect information on the traveler and the family members in Cuba whom the traveler is visiting. The form is provided in English and Spanish to accommodate those persons for whom Spanish is the primary language. The use of the form provides a standardized method of information collection, ensures uniform and consistent compliance, and allows OFAC to maintain detailed records that enable OFAC to verify that travelers are not exceeding the restriction of the frequency of visits to Cuba and that they are only visiting members of their immediate family.
Current Actions: There are no changes being made to the form at this time.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Individuals or households.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 60,000.
Estimated Time Per Respondent: 10 minutes.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 10,000.
The following paragraph applies to all of the collections of information covered by this notice:
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a valid Office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) control number. Books or records relating to a collection of information must be retained for five years.
