Looks like Cuban cigar restrictions has been lifted between United States and Cuba, many cigar smokers are taking to Twitter to celebrate.
Those in America travelling to Cuba and then back again can come back with tobacco and alcohol products up to $100, Yahoo News reports this stands for authorized American travellers.
Celebrations all over Twitter are coming in fast, many are very happy that travel restrictions between the two countries are starting to be loosened. Obama is in talks so that they can restore full diplomatic relations between United States and Cuba. This will end the 53-year U.S-imposed trade prohibition.
Cuba is very well known for its cigars, and people around the world who smokes Cuban cigars know they are the best. The lifted restriction would mean the cigar development will rise brining in millions to Cuba each year.
BBC News has an in-depth look into US-Cuba ties, the President of the United States has hailed a “new chapter” in US relations with Cuba.
