Cuba relaxes internal migration ban

Help

Cuba's authorities have relaxed an internal migration ban that prohibited Cubans from outside Havana from going to live in the capital.

From now on, the immediate relatives of the city's residents will not have to ask for permission to come in.

The measure is part of efforts by the government to update the socialist model and to improve the lives of Cubans.
