U.S. State Department Eases Trump-Era Restrictions on Cuba

HeadlineMay 17, 2022

The Biden administration is easing Trump-era restrictions on travel between the United States and Cuba. The State Department said Monday it will reinstate the Cuba Family Reunification Parole program, expanding visa processing and making it easier for families to visit relatives in Cuba. The administration is also lifting a $1,000 cap on remittances family members can send to relatives in Cuba. The new measures fall short of U.S.-Cuba rapprochement seen under former President Obama.
