New regulations take effect today between both, the Cuban and American governments

New regulations take effect today between both, the Cuban and American governments
After all the negotiations between both Washington and Havana about the political openness between Obama and Castro's governments, the media have echoed with the related topic, especially with regard to the relaxation of travel of American to the Caribbean island.

Today Friday 16, January 2015 effectively take effect the new regulations related to the topic of travel and other financial topics of interest to both nations. Starting today, Americans can visit the island in any of the twelve categories approved by the White House (government travel, intergovernmental organizations, media, research, educational, religious and medical projects, family visits among other categories) and they can buy souvenirs with a value not exceeding 400 USD and pay with their credit and debit cards, as recently announced by the American governments.

From now on, travel agencies and airlines are allowed to operate without the special license from OFAC. With these regulations, travel agencies may sell air tickets and tourist packages without being authorized by the Treasury Department as it has been so far. Statistics show that tourists arrivals to the island could reach the end of this year to 6 million with the introduction of this new market, as indicated by official bodies.
