Although the Cuban embargo is still largely in place, opportunities for businesses and individuals have expanded greatly in Cuba. Most recently, On April 22, 2016, the United States expanded the list of goods and services produced by “independent Cuban entrepreneurs” which may be imported into the United States. The day before, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), updated its Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on Cuba, addressing (among other issues) alterations to banking regulations, insurance, and the operation of property in Cuba. These changes came hot on the heels of airlines beginning regularly scheduled air service between the United States and Cuba.
