to the SDN List under its Venezuela sanctions program.

Additionally, the Venezuela General License 34 was updated – authorized individuals now include “Current employees and contractors of the Government of Venezuela who provide health or education services in Venezuela, including at hospitals, schools and universities” and the list of unauthorized items now includes “Any transactions or dealings with, or the unblocking of any property or interests in property of, any person included on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (SDN List)” – curious that wasn’t there before.

There is now also a General License 35 – “Authorizing Certain Administrative Transactions with the Government of Venezuela.”

Additionally, Syria-related (i.e. Turkey-related) General Licenses 2 and 3 – the ones related to dealings with the two previously-sanctioned Turkish government ministries – have been revoked.
