Q:  Are there exceptions to the prohibitions?
 
A:   Yes. OFAC regulations often provide general licenses authorizing the performance of certain categories of transactions. OFAC also issues specific licenses on a case-by-case basis under certain limited situations and conditions. Guidance on how to request a specific license is found below and at 31 C.F.R. 501.801.
To apply for a specific license, please go to our License Application Page. [06-16-06]
