Obama Does It

Though his opposing political party will challenge him, President Obama has held true to his word of opening relations with the island nation of Cuba. Which ever side one is on socially or politically one thing has been certain, the embargo has done nothing but caused the citizens of Cuba to suffer. It has done nothing to drive out the Castro regime. Therefore I support this new initiative. Obama has been all about trying something different when its obvious the "good old boy" method (the current methods) have not succeeded.

"I was very insistent with him that we would continue to promote democracy and human rights and speak out forcefully on behalf of the freedom of the people of Cuba," Obama told ABC's World News Tonight in an interview conducted Wednesday.
Obama -- who announced Wednesday that the United States would seek to normalize relations with Cuba after more than 50 years of tensions -- said he and Castro delivered "lengthy" opening statements before having a dialogue during their Tuesday phone call.
"I think there's the possibility, by engaging, by making sure that the American people are able to travel to Cuba, that the Cuban people are able to see, firsthand, what American values are," Obama said. "That is going to spur change among the people of Cuba. And that's our main objective here."

Connecting To Haiti

Regional airline InterCaribbean Airways is starting services from Kingston, Jamaica to Santo Domingo with a stopover in Port-au-Prince. There are Thursday and Saturday flights. The flying time from Jamaica to Haiti is 1 hour and 20 minutes, while the flight to Santo Domingo is another 55 minutes. In the past a longer flight to Puerto Rico or Miami had to be taken in order to connect. The flights are being added as Haiti seeks to develop tourism. 
The return flights are on Friday with a direct flight from Santo Domingo to Port-au-Prince. 
The flights provide Haiti with nonstop connections to Jamaica and the DR. 
Mr. Trevor Sadler, CEO of interCaribbean Airways, said: "We are pleased to offer these new routes to give travelers more choices and more connectivity across the Caribbean and support Haiti as it grows its appeal to the vacation visitor, while opening up new business opportunities. We look forward to increasing the frequency and number of destinations we serve in the new year".

Travel Easier

According the consul general of the United States Embassy in the Dominican Republic Sylvia Johnson, starting today, Wednesday 12 November 2014, getting a visa will be easier and less costly. 

The main change is that the applicant will need to make two appointments in order to carry out the application process for a visa, but the purchase of a PIN is no longer necessary. The appointments can be made online through the webpage or by telephone. 

The first appointment will be to attend the new Visa Attention Center, (VAC) at the Galeria 360 mall on John F. Kennedy Avenue. There they will have their photograph and fingerprints taken. The second appointment, if required, will be at the United States Embassy for an interview with a consular official. 

The visa application fee will cover all aspects of the visa including the two appointments and the delivery of the passport. There used to be an additional fee for the delivery. Johnson said that the interview process at the embassy would be faster because more applicants can be seen each day and, therefore, waiting time for appointments will be reduced significantly. 

Renewals of the same type of visa do not require consular interviews.
