US issuing licenses for increased Cuba travel

Washington has begun issuing travel licenses that promise to bring thousands more U.S. visitors each year on legal trips to Cuba.

A U.S. Treasury Department spokesperson says nine groups have been granted permission to operate so-called people-to-people exchanges since May.

The spokesperson said Friday that about 10 applications are coming in each week, and officials are reviewing them.

The spokesperson was not authorized to be quoted by name on the matter.
