In this Jan. 7, 2013 photo, people wait to enter the U.S. Interests Section to apply for U.S. visas in Havana, Cuba.  New travel rules taking effect Monday, Jan. 14, 2013, raise from 11 to 24 months the amount of time Cubans can be gone without losing residency rights back home, making it easier for people to work or study abroad longer while maintaining ties to the island, potentially sending money to relatives or even returning with hard-currency earnings to invest in newly legalized small businesses or cooperatives.
