A trip to Cuba could cost you up to $10,000 more in travel expenses, according to a travel advisory published by the Federal Travel Agency.
The agency said the travel costs are based on “federal travel guidelines” and do not include costs incurred to transport people and items from one country to another.
The guidance says people can travel to other countries if the travel is for business purposes.
Travel to Cuba is still free, though the cost to fly from New York to Havana can be up to more than $2,000.
In 2017, the U.S. was the only country to not include Cuba in its travel guide.
The U.K. and Australia also did not include the island nation on their travel guides.
A spokeswoman for the Federal Tourism Administration said the guidance does not apply to any of the countries listed in the guide, and that the agency does not provide travel guides to foreign governments.
