PROHIBITED DESTINATIONS

The U.S. holds complete embargoes against North Korea and Syria.

The exportation, reexportation, sale or supply, directly or indirectly, from the United States, or by a U.S. person wherever located, of any Apple goods, software, technology (including technical data), or services to any of these countries is strictly prohibited without prior authorization by the U.S. Government. 

OFAC IRANIAN GENERAL LICENSE D

On September 23, 2022, OFAC issued Iranian General License No. D-2 (which superseded General License D-2, dated February 7, 2014), authorizing the exportation or reexportation, directly or indirectly, from the United States or by U.S. persons, wherever located, to persons in Iran of "certain services, software, and hardware incident to personal communications". General License D-2 enumerates certain categories authorized for export to non-prohibited end-users and end-uses in Iran. Some Apple goods and Apple software fall into these categories. For scope and further details, see General License D-2 and the Annex to General License D-2, available from OFAC's Iran Sanctions Resource Center at http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Programs/pages/iran.aspx.

CUBA: SUPPORT FOR THE CUBAN PEOPLE

On January 16, 2015, BIS amended the Export Administration Regulations to create a new license exception Support For The Cuban People (SCP) and to authorize sales of the certain items covered under license exception Consumer Communication Devices (CCD). OFAC also published amendments to the Cuban Asset Control Regulations (CACR) authorizing export and reexports of items authorized for exports by BIS. License exceptions SCP and CCD enumerate certain categories authorized for export to non-prohibited end-users and end-uses in Cuba. Some Apple goods and Apple software fall into these categories. For scope and further details, see Cuba specific guidance on BIS website available at http://www.bis.doc.gov/index.php/policy-guidance/country-guidance/sanctioned-destinations/cuba and OFAC's Cuba Sanctions Resource  Center available at http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Programs/pages/cuba.aspx.

CONSUMER COMMUNICATION DEVICES TO SUDAN

OFAC lifted sanctions against Sudan in 2017 due to improvements in cooperation between the U.S. and Sudanese governments. Today, Sudan is not subject to any economic sanctions administered by OFAC. 

In December 2020, Sudan was removed from the US State Department’s State Sponsors of Terrorism (SST) List and with that, conforming changes were implemented by BIS. For more information regarding this change, see https://www.bis.doc.gov/index.php/documents/regulations-docs/federal-register-notices/federal-register-2021/2710-86-fr-4929/file.
