I find no good reason to visit Europe, but now even less. :-)

It'll be a bit of a PITA, but likely just an on-line form and 7 Euro every 3 years.

To be honest, I don't really see the benefit to this as security is handled by border patrol and "bad guys" will bypass those monitored pathways anyway. Its just another tax.

Thanks for the information. I'm traveling to Spain next month so no issue right now, but good to know as I've been seeing great prices on airfare to Europe. I've always had a lot of fun in France and want to go back.

No big deal. Just one more hoop.

The USA has had a similar thing in place for years now, called esta.
It’s a $15 tax to be paid every year.
Canada introduced it a couple years ago IIRC.

It’s just a quick and easy online form, I’m guessing it will be the same.

I know, one look at me and it’s hard to believe I’m not on a pizza world tour.

BTW, we’re overdue. Soon. :cheers:

It's a nice illusion to security. It should make people "feel" better even though it will be a pain in the ass.
