There have been countless movies made, cocktail recipes (mojito) stolen, embargoes broken and decades of controversy in the relationship between the United States and Cuba. After more than 50 years of cold war, relationships began to thaw, as US President Obama lifted the tourist travel restriction to Cuba. Keeping a promise to his supporters, Donald Trump is poised to roll back US-Cuba relations, ending US tourism to the island nation…

Trump Will Reportedly Announce A New Tourism Ban Today In Miami…

Politico, a very reliable source for political information is reporting that Donald Trump will announce today (June 16th, 2017) in Miami, plans to roll back President Obama’s agreements with Cuba by completely banning tourist travel to the island, reinstating embargoes and creating new financial restrictions aimed at squeezing the “regime”.

The Ban Will Likely Take Months To Implement, So If You Want To Visit Cuba, Go Now…

Creating a directive or ban and having it implemented in law are two different things entirely. Before the ban can be imposed, it must pass through the Secretary of the Treasury and the Department of Commerce. Enactment is estimated within 90 days, so it’s possible to travel before then, while rules are still flexible. Travel may still be possible after the ban, but it’s dicey.

So It’s Possible US Citizens Could Still Travel To Cuba After The Ban?

Theoretically, yes. The Trump administration plans to strictly enforce rules and reasons for any travel and reserves the right to audit all movements and transactions for five years, according to reports. This could mean far too much headache to justify a trip. Anyone hoping to secure travel would need to provide a detailed itinerary for the trip in advance, and is banned from any transactions at establishments controlled by the government, which are most. It’s complicated.
