On 15 January 2015, the Obama administration announced new regulations regarding Cuba that took effect last Friday. The changes will ease 50-year-old restrictions on travel and trade between Americans and the Cuban population.
One of the big changes? According to the New York Times, Americans will be allowed to travel to Cuba for any of a dozen specific reasons without first obtaining a special license from the U.S. government, as had been the case until now. And travelers will be able to use credit cards and spend money in Cuba (and bring back up to $400 in purchases, including those hand-rolled cigars).
