Americans will need a visa for European travel in 2021

The move is meant to improve security, "to avoid any further problems with illegal migration and terrorism", the ETIAS visa website says.

U.S. citizens will have to get a new type of visa through the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) to visit the European Schengen Area, according to the European Union's announcement on Friday.

Travelers will need to apply online and pay a fee, which is not yet officially set in place but which European Commission materials suggest could be as low as 7 euros ($7.87). Eventually, the new visa will be required for short-stay travel as well.

The new policy applies to 26 countries in the Schengen zone of Europe.

Americans traveling to Europe will have to require new type of visa as from 2021, after a diplomatic dispute pitting United States and five European countries.

It further asserts that the USA was at logger heads with European Parliament and European Commission over the same issue. 'This way we will know who is travelling to Europe before they even get here'.

Americans, who can now spend up to 90 days in the Schengen zone without a visa, will need a valid passport, an email account, and a credit or debit card to apply for the visa.

They will have to fill out an online application and provide a small fee of nearly $8.

"Finally, it is also useful to remember that all US citizens are required to obtain an ETIAS visa to travel to Europe, all minors are able to travel with their normal passport and do have to apply for an ETIAS to enter the Schengen area too".
