THANK Presidents BARACK OBAMA & RAUL CASTRO for BRINGING Your CUBAN CIGARS & RUM Back to The USA!!!
If your travel plans should happen to include venturing to the caribbean island nation of CUBA, yo should be VERY happy to know that thanks to President BARACK OBAMA, you may now bring some CUBAN GOODNESS back with you to the UNITED STATES!!!
Travelers who love Cuban cigars and rum will be happy to know that a new executive order has been put in place for Americans to get their hands on the goods.
USA TODAY reports the Obama administration announced a new way to increase trade and travel with the communist island: No more restrictions on the Cuba's famed rum and cigars. Aye!
Now, U.S. travelers are allowed to purchase unlimited (you read that right) quantities of Cuban cigars and rum in any country where they’re sold (as long as its for personal consumption) and will be allowed to bring it back to the States. For those of you who don’t have plans on traveling out of the country, unfortunately you can’t order ish online and have it sent to your home. Sorry!
Cuban cigars and rum aren't the only things allowed in now. USA Today also reports:
The regulations issued by the U.S. departments of Commerce and Treasury will make it easier for U.S. companies to import Cuban-made pharmaceuticals, U.S. agricultural companies to sell their products to the island and Cubansto purchase U.S.-made goods online.
The changes follow a series of steps taken since U.S. President BARACK OBAMA and CUBA President RAUL CASTRO (above) announced on Dec. 17, 2014, that the Cold War foes would normalize relations after more than a half century of enmity.
