Default In 2021 US Citizens Will Need A Visa To Visit The European Union

US citizens traveling to Europe without a visa will be a thing of the past come 2021.

The European Union announced on Friday that American travelers will need a new type of visa -- a European Travel Information and Authorization System or ETIAS -- to visit the European Schengen Area

The Schengen Area is a zone of 26 European countries that do not have internal borders and allow people to move between them freely, including countries like Spain, France, Greece, Germany, Italy and Poland.
Currently, US citizens can travel to Europe for up to 90 days without a visa.

To apply for the ETIAS, US citizens will need a valid passport, an email account and a credit or debit card, the EU said. Minors, the website said, will still only need their normal passports to travel after the visas go into effect.
The Union said that the ETIAS visa is valid for three years and allows Americans to enter the Schengen Area as many times as necessary.

On the ETIAS website, the European Union said it "has recently decided to improve their security level to avoid any further problems with illegal migration and terrorism."

The United States has been in a dispute with the EU's European Parliament and European Commission over visas for Bulgaria, Croatia, Poland, Romania and Cyprus. Travelers in those five countries are the only EU nations that the US requires to apply for a visa.

In 2016, the European Commission first released a report calling for the U.S. to grant the same visa-free status to those five countries as the other 23 EU nations in exchange for U.S. citizens maintaining the same visa-free status in the Schengen Area. EU rules require equal treatment for all member states.

The report also indicated, however, that the commission wanted to wait until after President Trump was in office to "push for full visa reciprocity."

In June 2018, the Parliament voted in favor of the Commission imposing visas on US citizens.

That's too bad, but it's not a surprise.

So if I fly in without a visa, would I still be able to to claim political asylum on the grounds of Trump making me feel unsafe because I'm a non-binary transracial, bisexual, transgendered Muslim who is escaping oppression?

Seems like an easy loophole to get out of the Visa requirement. The government assistance and free reign to rape white women is an extra added bonus.

Sort is a visa but easy to do.

ETIAS will resemble a system that the United States already uses.
