Pres. Trump is on his way to Miami, where he will deliver a speech reversing Obama’s policy of embracing and backing Cuba’s murderous and repressive apartheid dictatorship.
While the individual cultural travel rule will be terminated, many of the regulations to relax trade and travel will remain, along with some of the measures that allowed increased telecommunications services. The countries’ embassies will remain open and the “wet foot, dry foot” policy won’t be reinstated. And U.S. travelers who still head to Cuba will continue to be able to bring back as many cigars and as much rum as they want.
Individual travel will remain legal through more than 10 categories, including research and humanitarian work, and family visits.
