How can we obtain permission to travel to Cuba for a research project involving the ship, Morro Castle, lost in 1934 off Asbury Park, NJ.
This ship was owned by the Ward Line and sailed between New York and Havana, Cuba.
We have already requested a license from the U.S. government (OFAC) and it was deemed "incomplete." Our application clearly stated the purpose of our research and we are concerned that there is an intent to deny our request for reasons unbeknownst to us. This research is being done on behalf of the New Jersey Maritime Museum, a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
