Nino Diaz reads a Spanish language newspaper at a Cuban cafe in Miami's Little Havana section, Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012 about the news of the day. The Cuban government has announced that it will no longer require islanders to apply for an exit visa, eliminating a much-loathed bureaucratic procedure that has been a major impediment for many seeking to travel overseas for more than a half-century. A notice published in Communist Party newspaper Granma said the change takes effect Jan. 14, and beginning on that date islanders will only have to show their passport and a visa from the country they are traveling to. It is the most significant advance this year in President Raul Castro's five-year plan of reform that has already seen the legalization of home and car sales and a big increase in the number of Cubans owning private businesses.(AP Photo/J Pat Carter)
