Download PDF for this date

The issuance of all immigration visas to Cuba has been indefinitely suspended, Dr. Gonzales Muniaz, Foreign Minister, announced today.

At the same time, the Cuban Government has cancelled visas already issued which have not yet been used. The government’s action directly affects hundreds of Jews holding such visas which were obtained for them through the intervention of their relatives in Cuba.
