New laws ease travel restrictions for Cubans

Cuba is passing a set of reforms that will make it easier for Cubans to travel abroad.

    For decades, Cuba has been derided by human rights advocates as a "prison island" because of its tough travel restrictions.

    But a new set of reforms will make it easier for Cubans to leave the country.

    The government is easing many travel rules allowing Cubans to be able to enter and exit the country as they like. 

    The law makes travel easier for all Cubans, most of whom have never left the island.
