Starting In 2021: U.S. Citizens Need Visa To Go To EU

EU SAYS ETIAS VISA REQUIREMENT IS MEANT TO BOOST SECURITY AND COMBAT TERRORISM AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION

(CNN) – If you’re planning a European vacation any time after next year, you’ll need more than just a passport.

Starting in 2021, Americans traveling to European Union nations will have to get a visa.

The EU announced the policy change Friday, describing it as an effort to boost security and deal with terrorism and illegal migration.

The policy requires Americans to obtain what’s called an ETIAS visa.

It’s good for three years and works for multiple entries.

The new policy does not apply to travel to the U.K.
