The lines outside the diplomatic missions of Spain, Mexico and Italy appeared longer than the lines that form on a normal Monday to ask about or apply for visas.

Travelers will still need a visa to travel to almost every country in the world. The Cuban government has listed 15 countries in which Cubans are allowed to travel to without a visa: Hungary, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Slovakia, Barbados, Liechtenstein, Malaysia, Granada, Saint Cristobal and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Moldavia, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan.

The new rules also raise from 11 to 24 months the amount of time Cubans can be gone without losing residency rights.
