Today, Raul Castro‘s government announced that from January 14, 2013 the cubans wishing to travel abroas won’t have to present the requirements that they are used to, such as the exit permit and the invitation letter, which over the years have caused complaints and criticism from the people.
The digital newspaper Granma, confirmed that from next year, Cuban citizens will only require the presentation of the destination visa and the current passport. Furthermore, immigration reform extends the length of stay abroad from 11 to 24 months.
However, Cuba warns that this update of the immigration law takes into account the right of the regime to “defend from the U.S. subversive plans”.
“Measures shall be maintained to preserve the human capital created by the Revolution, according to the brain drain applied by the Powerful” Granma added
