    Government to let Cubans travel freely


    The Associated Press

    HAVANA -- The Cuban government announced Tuesday that it will eliminate a half-century-old restriction that requires citizens to get an exit visa to leave the country.

    The decree, which takes effect Jan. 14, will eliminate a much-loathed bureaucratic procedure that has kept many Cubans from traveling or moving abroad.

    "These measures are truly substantial and profound," said Col. Lamberto Fraga, Cuba's deputy chief of immigration. "What we are doing is not just cosmetic."

    This is great news. I hope they open it up to travel both ways, although I would love to see Cuba before it gets too modernized. I have family there, and it would be something to fly in and see all the old cars and stuff.
