If you have a preference for fine Cuban cigars and rum, here’s some good news. When you find yourself in a country where they do sell these Cuban goods, you can now bring back as much as you want to the U.S. for personal use — online orders and shipping to your home are still not allowed. The restriction lift by President Obama comes at a time when the U.S. is looking to increase trade and travel with the communist island. The POTUS also wants to make this new open relationship with Cuba irreversible before he leaves office in January.

What other changes have been announced concerning Cuba?
