Cuban Cigars More Legal in U.S.

Effective October 17, 2016, U.S. citizens who travel abroad to any country (not just Cuba) can now bring back all the Cuban cigars and rum they want to (no more $100 limit). However, the cigars and rum must be for personal use only, and cannot be resold. The same duty and tax rules will apply as for cigars and alcohol brought back from other countries (up to 100 cigars and one liter of alcohol are duty free within an $800 exemption). Cuban cigars still cannot be purchased nor sold in the United States, whether in stores, online or via mail order.
