Licensing Requirements for Journalists Traveling to Cuba (Taken Question)

2003/1100

Question: Has there been a change in visa or licensing requirements for journalists traveling to Cuba?

Answer: We refer you to the Cuban government regarding whether it has changed its requirements for issuing visas to foreign journalists traveling to Cuba.
