From 2021 Americans will need a visa to enter to Europe. The main reason is safety. Millions of American citizens will focus on Europe every year. Europe is a great holiday destination as well as business opportunities. Every US citizen is currently allowed to stay in Europe for 90 days without VAT. This will be a thing of the past since 2021 and should be repealed. The US citizen will need a valid passport, e-mail address and credit or debit card to set it up, and it will take a few minutes to process the permission and not cost more than 190 crowns. They will be able to travel to ETIAS as many times as he wants for the period of validity. Validity will be 3 years. It is mainly a security step against illegal immigration. It also has a passenger overview with help. The question is whether it will affect tourism in any way. Indeed, someone may be discouraged from deciding on vacation in Europe.
