A woman shades herself with her documents as she waits outside the U.S. Interests Section to apply for U.S. visas in Havana, Cuba, Monday, Jan. 14, 2013. Cubans formed long lines outside travel agencies and migration offices, as a highly anticipated new law took effect Monday, ending the island's much-hated exit visa requirement. In October, the Interests Section more than doubled its capacity for processing nonimmigrant visa applications, and the wait time for an interview has fallen from nearly five years to less than a year, according to U.S. diplomats.
