  • ETOA: Suspension of visa exemption status for US citizens "extremely unlikely"

    BULGARIA, 2017/03/05 The European Parliament voted on 2nd March 2017 to require the European Commission to suspend visa exemption status for US citizens. In ETOA's view this is extremely unlikely to happen: the Council of the EU will object and the status quo will prevail. The situation arises because, since 2014, citizens of Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Poland and Romania have needed a visa to visit the US. This means that there is not full reciprocity in treatment of EU and US citizens. EU legislation provides for a 'delegated act' allowing the Commission to suspend exemption from visa requirements in the event of 'non-reciprocity.' This would apply to citizens of nations that impose visa requirement on EU citizens.
