How to prepare for the travel advisory from Cuba
The U.S. government is issuing an advisory about travel to Cuba for Americans with travel authorization, a move that could put the travel restrictions on hold until the government reviews how to handle travel to the island.
The travel advisory is part of a new push to boost public confidence in Cuba, which President Donald Trump has called a “great friend” and has called “the place to be” for Americans looking to visit.
In the advisory, the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) recommends Americans with visas from countries other than Cuba to review their travel itineraries before traveling to the country.
It also recommends those who have been issued a visa from Cuba for the past five years to take extra precautions if traveling to Cuba, including checking in regularly and making sure their passports and other documents are valid.
Trump has previously said that Cuba is a “terrible, terrible place.”
He has also questioned the safety of U.A.E. citizens visiting the island, which is considered one of the world’s most dangerous countries for tourists.
