U.S. Citizens will need to register to travel to Europe starting in 2021


Europe is the most-visit- ed region in the world. In addition to offering some of the world’s best cuisine, museums, and architecture, Europe is a popular destina- tion for U.S. travelers, who do not need a tourist visa to visit most countries.

But the rules are about to change. Starting on January 1, 2021, all U.S. citizens who want to travel to the 26 members of Europe’s Schengen Zone will need to register with the European Travel Information and Authorization System (ETIAS) or risk being turned away at the border.
