New Policy on Travel to Cuba

A few months ago President Donald Trump announced new changes in the policy regarding travel to Cuba.

Some of these changes will have an effect on your future travel to the island, such as prohibiting U.S. citizens from making financial transactions with any company controlled by the Cuban government. As a result there will be an increase in financial audits, conducted by the U.S. Department of Treasury, to ensure citizens are adhering to the new rules.
