The U.S. ban on visits to <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Cuba</st1:place></st1:country-region> began as a trade embargo. In 1961, President Kennedy asked Press Secretary Pierre Salinger to get about 1,000 of his favorite Cuban cigars. After Salinger delivered them the next morning, Kennedy signed the decree banning all Cuban products from the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">United States</st1:place></st1:country-region>. Cuban cigars were now illegal in the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">US</st1:place></st1:country-region>. (Since Kennedy had the cigars before he signed the decree, he could lawfully possess them).<o:p></o:p>

In July 1963 Kennedy further tightened the embargo and made most travel to <st1:country-region w:st="on">Cuba</st1:country-region> illegal for <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">U.S.</st1:place></st1:country-region> citizens. <o:p></o:p>
