For many years, Cuban scientists have had great difficulty when they needed to travel outside Cuba to attend conferences, conduct research, or obtain training. It was particularly difficult to travel to the U.S., where the State Dept. would not issue a visa until just before the travel was scheduled (or sometimes after! or never!). Without a U.S. visa, the Cuban government would not issue an exit visa.

 

Well, half the problem will disappear as of 14 January 2013 when the Cuban government will no longer require exit visas.

 

"A notice published in Communist Party newspaper Granma said the change takes effect Jan. 14, and beginning on that date islanders will only have to show their passport and a visa from the country they are traveling to."
