EU Parliament Votes to End Visa-Free Travel for U.S. Citizens
MUNICH—The European Parliament passed a non-binding resolution to end visa-free travel for Americans entering the European Union.
The move follows the failure of the United States to agree to visa-free travel for citizens of five EU countries, namely Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Poland, and Romania, as part of a reciprocity agreement.
Currently, U.S. citizens can enter all EU countries without a visa.
The resolution was intended to “encourage” the United States to live up to its reciprocity agreement, according to a statement issued by the European Parliament, but it may not go into effect due to fears of the impact it will have on tourism and trade.
