I always thought that it was only cigars brought back from Cuba that was legal. 

This article refers to Cuban cigars form anywhere in the world. 

My accountant (Artie) sent it through on Saturday.   he normally doesn't drink but I have noticed he has been hitting the Ouzo heavily lately ;)

about fuc.... TIME.  Wow times are a changin between US and Cuba.  Getting better all the time.  Now get the credit card tsituation straight,

allow americans to go to CUBA at anytime with no restrictions and give Cuba the chance to be a US state.  Puerto Rico blew thier chance a couple of

years ago when they voted against becoming a state. Let Cuba take Puerto's slot and have a chance.  I'm sure they would jump at the chance.

A marriage made in heaven, makes sense. C'mon Trumpy Bear give them a legal shot........

I think the US will cease to exist before they ever allow Cuba to be even a territory

A lot of Puerto Ricans hate the United States and see them as occupying their country.

Yes, this was issued in 2016. Glad it is still intact!

I was hoping it was for by mail too. I got a few good stern letters by customs and when I go to Mexico this spring hopefully I won't be pulled in for questioning by them.

I quite doubt that, even if there is a democratic president in office they would never do that. For one they are still first and foremost a communist country.

Just wondering since everything I'm hearing here in the US, politically speaking in regards to Cuba, is heading back in the other direction...of course, with US news, you never know what is true and what isn't anymore...

Fairly shortsighted of them. I’m guessing they’d like the billions in  aid and welfare to continue.

Question is - is it still 100 per person before duty?

The limit is what ever the normal duty free limit is (either 50 or 100 cigars I think). You can bring in more, you just have to pay import taxes

Yes. Hit the Munich LCDH in October (great staff, enjoyed hanging out). €1400 in cigars and rum (fyi, HC Cohiba is really good, but not worth the $$$). Current limits are 100 cigars and 1 bottle of alcohol before duty. Also, limit of $800 for ALL purchases (per person) before duty hits. Price or quantity triggers the duty charge. Currently at 4%. Spreading it across multiple people helps, but plan ahead to split into multiple purchases so that you can take advantage of the VAT refund. I wasn't able to split up the receipt, so I couldn't get it stamped at entry. Lost a VAT refund of ~€160.

@El Presidente...

After getting back from my trip I was hoping to open a locker and slowly stock over the next couple years. Was hoping to do a 2-3 week trip to AUS/NZ in 2020 and making a stop at FoH to empty it out! When you start the lockers back up, is this something that could be done?

HAHAHAHAHAHA. THANK YOU! If I had a dollar for every time I've been called a "Howly" I'd be weeks, not years, from retiring.
