Probably not many Americans with the exception of people in Florida paid much attention to the announcement that the Cuban government will relax travel restrictions for its citizens. This is a major development for the Cuban people who have wanted relaxed travel freedoms ever since the Castro revolution and takeover of the country. The new freedom will be effective in January.

It will be less expensive to obtain an exit visa. It now costs $150, which is about six months of a typical Cuban’s salary. Under the new regulations, Cubans will be able to live outside the island for two years. All Cubans will have to do to leave the island is to present a passport and a visa from the country they plan to visit. The present law is that they can live in another country for 11 months and if they don’t return they lose all of their property and other rights.
