A Cuban reads Communist Party's Granma newspaper which informs about a new immigration law, in Havana on October 16, 2012. Cubans will no longer require exit permits for foreign travel from January 14, the government said on Tuesday, the latest in a trickle of reforms enacted on the communist-ruled island. The government has also extended the period citizens are allowed to remain abroad from 11 to 24 months, with the new law set to enter into force 90 days from now, the foreign ministry said in a statement. Cuba has imposed stringent travel restrictions for a half-century but has failed to prevent thousands of its citizens from emigrating illegally each year, sometimes in dangerous sea voyages using rickety boats.
