U.S. Nixes Limits on Bringing in Cuban Rum, Cigars
The Obama administration is set to end the $100 limit on the value of Cuban rum and cigars allowed to be brought back to the United States by American travelers. Under the new rules, the AP reported Friday, Cuban rum and cigars will be subject to the same duties as all other alcohol and tobacco products. The previous regulations limited travelers to a combined value of $100 in rum and cigars. The restriction’s end means travelers can bring thousands of dollars worth of Cuban cigars back into the United States, as the highly valued tobacco products already sell at a premium outside Cuba.
