This is actually a question a friend of mine had that I couldn't answer directly and really don't know the laws specifically.

If a person already has dual citizenship (specifically American and Dutch) but was born Dutch are they still required to follow travel resrictions to Cuba?

It is unlawful for an American citizen to travel to Cuba since the trade embargo without being granted permission. Most countries do not require a visa up front when traveling as an American citizen and a visa can easily be obtained upon arrival.

Of course there are ways around this rule but without bending or breaking the law of the US.

Would such a travel under a Dutch visa be detrimental to a US citizenship?
