U.S. Loosening Cuba Travel Restrictions

His Fraudulency Joe Biden is loosening some restrictions on travel to Cuba and remittances that were put in place under President Donald Trump.

According to Yahoo Finance:

WASHINGTON/HAVANA (Reuters) - The United States on Wednesday moved to lift some Trump-era restrictions on remittances and travel to Cuba even as it fended off criticism for blocking the Communist-run island and long-time foe from attending a regional summit this week.

The amended regulations, set to be published in the U.S. Federal Register on Thursday, will provide further fine print around a broader easing of U.S. restrictions on Cuba first announced by the administration of President Joe Biden in May.

A Treasury Department official said publication of the new regulations was purposefully aligned with the U.S.-hosted Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles.

The Cuba-related rule changes this week allow U.S. citizens to once again travel to Cuba on group educational trips hosted by U.S.-based travel companies or organizations, and to attend professional meetings and conferences in Cuba.

The regulations also lift a $1,000 quarterly limit on family remittances to Cuban nationals who are close relatives and allow U.S. citizens to send funds to non-family members on the island.

I guess that if one is taking a cruise for "educational" purposes, it is allowed. But that's only a guess. We'll have to read the fine print to know for sure.

I took a cruise to Cuba in April 2019, which was two months before the Trump restrictions were put in place.
