    I've already seen what I care to see on that side of the pond if that happens especially considering all of the terrorism they are facing because the bleeding hearts let the muslims in and surprise they are blowing things up now.

    Thankfully there are a lot of National parks to see here and plenty of places to sail to as an alternative to mainland Europe. Maybe I'll go visit Australia or New Zealand.

    If France, Germany, Spain and Italy wish to be that spiteful or allow what amounts to the USSR buffer states to dictate to them then by all means enjoy less tourism money. In case you didn't notice it's not like the main States in the EU are not able to come here and visit. Of course if this happens the rest of the EU collective can kiss their visitation good bye too.

    How do you know you can visit before buying your plane ticket?

    If the visa guarantees entry to the US, it is better than a waiver.

    You can thank Barry for that.
    Let's hope Donnie can fix it.

    You check you countries website to see where they suggest travel is safe and they let you know about the process to go to different countries.

    My point is we the citizens didn't make this policy. If the EU wants to be tit for tat how does that make us the citizens in our country on their side? It doesn't. Instead it in my opinion comes off as arrogant. So considering I can just as easily sail my Leopard 45 to Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Bahamas and so on it doesn't hurt me. By all means decline to have someone come over with a 5,000 Euro budget after lodging and travel expenses for a few weeks. I'm not jumping through hoops to get a Visa.

    The issue has been ongoing for three years.

    I blame Obama.

    america has every right to request visas in a country by country basis. EU is not a country. citizens of EU countries will regret this soon.

    Hope that when Nato needs us to pull their chestnuts out of the fire, that our visas are all stamped and proper first.

    The EU Parliament vote was largely symbolic. It is not binding on the EU in general, and not to any of countries affected by the exemption to visa-waiver reciprocity the US has for Eastern European countries.

    This vote was largely symbolic. Intended to send a not-so-subtle message to Donald Trump about the possible consequences of rushing too fast down the anti-foreigner tirade he's been engaged in.

    The exceptions to the visa-waiver reciprocity agreement were put in place by the Obama Administration, and for very good reasons. Some Eastern European EU member states didn't (and still don't) have the necessary security and identity measures in place that would prevent militants getting a plane to the US. Britain, France, Germany, Spain, etc. all do. Poland, Bulgaria, Cypris, and Romania? Not so much.

    The EU Parliament knows this. But don't worry - you are not likely to have to cancel your plans to visit Paris or London.

    When you get a visa for one Schengen country, you can visit them all.
