This could pose a problem for OFAC. If Beyonce and Jay Z travel was not "legal" and OFAC does not act ....

The doors could be wide open.

Thanks to this article I found my cousin on the balcony of La Modeda Cubana, I'll surprise him with a pic next week on my visit to Cuba. Regarding OFAC, That I know of, Jay-z (Shawn Carter) and Beyonce have dual citizenship from Croatia. Even if they aren't, I'm sure that they can pay whatever fee the US imposes on them.

“This could pose a problem for OFAC. If Beyonce and Jay Z travel was not "legal" and OFAC does not act ....”

***********

My guess is that OFAC doesn’t want to bring any attention to the trip.

“ ... the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control, which is responsible for licensing approved travel to Cuba, said it does not comment on individual cases.”

Charlesgrandson,

"That I know of, Jay-z (Shawn Carter) and Beyonce have dual citizenship from Croatia."

They dont have Croatian passport. rumor is that Beyonce discovered her pregnancy while vacationing in Hvar, Croatia as result mayor of Hvar gave their daugher, Ivy Blue honorary citizenship..

Mayor wanted to promote the village of Hvar since Jay Z moors his yatch there every summer.

Beyonce and Jay Z are not breaking any new ground here... they join Jack Nicholson, Leonardo Dicaprio, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Al Pacino, Chevy Chase, Oliver Stone, Kevin Costner, Harry Belafonte, Stephen Spielberg, Sean Penn, Ralph Nader, Danny Glover, Mike Tyson, Carlos Santana,... the list goes on and on...

Cheers,

Terry

Not to mention Ry Cooder who was subsequently fined for his work on Beuna Vista Social Club.
