The Biden administration on Monday announced a sweeping reversal of Donald Trump’s hard-line approach to Cuba, expanding flights to the island, ramping up visa processing and allowing more support for local businesses and remittances inflows.

The measures will make it easier for families to visit relatives in Cuba, and for authorized US travelers to engage with the Cuban people, attend meetings and conduct research, the State Department said.
