“15.05.82 In order to reduce Cuba’s hard-currency revenues from U.S. tourists, the Cuban Assets Control Regulations were amended; and the provision establishing limited imports for U.S. travellers to Cuba (31 CFR 515.560) was tougher to authorize imports of up to U.S. $100 only for U.S. officials or foreigners on official visits to Cuba; media people and professional researchers and people visiting close relatives in Cuba. The applicability of this provision was clarified afterwards by a later amendment, effective on July 22, 1982.” [Pro Embargo]
