The European Parliament has voted to end visa-free travel for Americans within the EU.

It comes after the US failed to agree visa-free travel for citizens of five EU countries – Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Poland and Romania – as part of a reciprocity agreement. US citizens can normally travel to all countries in the bloc without a visa.

The vote by the parliament’s civil liberties committee, which urged the revocation of the scheme within two months, means Americans will have to apply for extra documents for 12 months after the European Commission implements it.



I would suspect this hurting them more than us

Are you kidding me? Do you you know how many Americans travel to Europe on business and pleasure? A lot! This is going to be a giant pain. Thanks Trump!

That's fine. Pretty soon US will be subjugated to Russia and we can at least travel to parts of eastern Europe using our new Russian passports.

It would be a major hassle for many many people. We travel outside the US quite often and have for decades. It's been a long time since we had to get visas....for USSR before the breakup.

Takes a lot of time to get them, depending on the consulate. We were living in DC at the time so at least there were nearby embassies/consulates.

Last month we went to the Mexican consulate in Orlando, FL to get our permanentes (green card) and we were in and out within an hour, but it was a 2+ hour one-way drive.

Last gasp of the failing EU economic venture.


these clowns never take action where they have to back up their words. If they want to bite the hand that feeds them, they can spend some of that cash used for social programs on their own defense. Good luck. France is the next to exit.


Won't last long if they begin to lose profit from US business travel. Cash before ethics is the EU motto.

It now goes to the European Commission, who will decide whether to implement the Parliaments reccomendation.

So nothing is certain as yet.

Why do you suspect that? What do you think the consequences to them would be?
