Obama eliminates restrictions for travelers buying Cuban cigars & rum


The Obama administration announced today that starting Monday,  travelers can purchase unlimited quantities of Cuban cigars and rum sold in any country and can bring it back to the U.S. if it is for personal consumption. Normal limits on duty and tax exemptions will apply.

President Obama previously partially lifted the ban on Cuban cigars and rum in January of last year  but only for $100 worth  of it in their carry-on luggage.
