Cuba

We regret to advise that, due to international sanctions in force against Cuba, we are not currently able to accept new instructions for the filing, processing or renewal of IP rights for this country. Although IP is listed as an exemption from the sanctions, the movement of funds to Cuba is not possible and the delivery of documents to Cuba is also proving problematic.
