America The United States is reducing the validity of B2 tourist visas
Cuba slammed a U.S. government decision to shorten the duration of visitor visas granted to Cuban nationals and impose more stringent restrictions on them.
The United States is reducing the validity of B2 tourist visas from five years to three months and from multiple entries to single entry, citing "reasons of reciprocity." The changes were posted online by the U.S. Embassy in Cuba and are to go into effect starting Monday.
The foreign minister denied that the changes were in keeping with the principle of reciprocity, saying "Cuba offers all means so that U.S. citizens, from any country, including the U.S., can obtain a visa." ■
