Cuba eases travel restriction for citizens
CNN: Starting next year, Cubans traveling abroad will face fewer hurdles leaving the country.
The official news site Granma reported Tuesday that the Cuban government will no longer require a travel permit and a letter of invitation.
Until now, Cubans had to pay $150 for an exit visa. A resident in the country that the Cuban wanted to visit would also have to write a letter of invitation.
Fees associated with the letter ran as high as $200. That’s a steep price in a country where the average monthly income is about $460.
