For decades, Cubans have needed exit visas to travel out of the country. It's a separate document from a simple passport that restricts travel and it's enormously unpopular in Cuba. They're generally difficult to obtain and they're expensive. 

But not anymore. The Cuban government has announced that they will no longer require exit visas to leave the country. The BBC's Sarah Rainsford has been reporting on this development from Havana.
