But the latest regulatory change that will get the most focus was the complete ban on rum and cigars from Cuba.
The administration allowed $100 worth of rum and cigars in luggage in the the recent past, but now there is no limit to how much rum and cigars are allowed in checked luggage, USA Today reported.
Earlier this year, Obama eased the ban on travel to Cuba. Now, if travelers want to visit Cuba, it has to be declared an educational trip, meaning it's not technically vacation, but that visitors would meet and interact with the people of Cuba in normal settings, The Huffington Post reported.
There are actually 12 categories that a trip can fall under for a private journey to the island. The list includes not only educational trips, but also family visits, journalism or religious activities, the Wall Street Journal reported.
