The US State Department said the country would reinstate a family reunification programme known as the Cuban Family Reunification Parole and continue to boost the capacity of its consular services. It will also expand authorised travel, increase support for Cuban entrepreneurs, and “ensure that remittances flow more freely to the Cuban people while not enriching those who perpetrate human rights abuses”. Al Jazeera reports that the measures, which come after a lengthy US government review, mark the most significant changes in Washington’s approach to Havana since Biden took office in January of last year.
