I took a chance and left out "from". DL came through. It was accepted.

I'm pretty sure that the governments of those islands allow their citizens to leave. (To be sure, so does Cuba's, since 2013.)

I wrote 'city-dwellers', because my brain did not produce the word 'citizen'. Is it merely sloppy English, or is it wrong?
