The election of Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris as President and Vice-President promises a rapid legal restoration of all forms of travel to Cuba permitted under the Obama Administration. At that time First Lady elect Jill Biden visited Camaguey and Havana as seen in this White House video

The biggest uncertainty is the impact of Covid-19. Cuba has been reasonably successful with its control and has reopened for visitors from abroad who are tested on arrival and subject to quarantine if infected. Flights from Miami and Tampa have resumed.

The program is cosponsored by the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST). The organizer of the program, the Cuba/US People to People Partnership, is also circulating an Appeal to the Biden-Harris Administration for rapid action on Cuba that can be seen and signed here
