The new regulations are called the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS). When the system launches in early 2024, it will require ALL visitors who currently travel to Europe visa-free, such as citizens from the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, to apply for travel authorization and receive approval prior to their departure.
The authorization is not exactly a visa and does not require visa-like obligations to travel, the European Commission claims. The goal of ETIAS is to increase security within the EU as they can no longer identify the enemy. America and others have compromised their borders and there are many with ill will amongst us. They claim the length of time that Americans will be able to spend in Europe as a tourist is not changing, but how will anyone be able to travel outside their respective country during an ongoing global conflict? So US passport holders are allowed to stay up to 90 days within a 180-day period, but for any stay longer than 90 days, a special visa is required.
If you travel outside of your respective country, depending on where you live, you're on your own. Biden has abandoned American naturals in Israel and Palestine, forcing those in Israel to take out a loan merely to travel to a neighboring country. Restrictions are rarely removed once implemented as the US saw after the Patriot Act was introduced post-9/11. Our ability to travel and move freely throughout nations is coming to a halt.
