U.S. faults Cuba for visa shortfall

HAVANA – The United States issued only about 15,000 of the 20,000 emigrant visas it had agreed to issue to Cubans during the last fiscal year, American authorities said Monday, and they blamed Cuban officials for the shortfall.

Cuban authorities have not allowed the American mission to fill 11 job openings, all typically held by Cuban citizens, on the section’s 45-member binational staff, said Sean Murphy, consul general at the U.S. Interests Section in Havana.

Havana limits the number of Americans it allows to work at the mission, so a majority of jobs are performed by Cuban citizens who legally must be hired through a Cuban government employment agency with the approval of their government.
