Traveling to Cuba as dual US/UK citizen

Hi,

We're looking at traveling to Cuba shortly and hold both US and UK passports. For various reasons we'll be flying from the US, so two quick questions.
1. As we're there for professional research (both academics), do we need to complete the specific travel request from OFAC, or do anything in advance in terms of this?
2. Can we obtain the cheaper entry card for the UK passports even though we're flying to and from the US?

Thanks!

Here is the detailed explanation of what qualifies under that category:

Professional activities is one of the 12 check boxes in accordance with US government regulations, currently usually on the same sheet of paper as the application for the Cuban tourist card.

No, you need to present a PINK travel card in order to board a flight from the US. Your airline or its rep agency sells them, varying from U$50-100 depending on who's selling them.
