In this Jan. 7, 2013 photo, a woman holds papers after filling out a passport application outside an immigration office in Havana, Cuba. In the past nearly all exit visa applications were granted, and relatively quickly, but the costs were prohibitive to many in this country where wages average $20 a month. Between notarization and application fees, fees ran to $300 or more per trip, and some Cubans paid an additional $200 to $300 to people overseas for invitation letters. Now, with a new law taking effect Monday, Jan. 14, 203, islanders need only make a one-time $100 application for a passport, renewable for $20 every two years. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes)
