EU gives US six months to lift visas for Romanians

The European Commission has told the United States to lift visa requirements on Poland, Romania, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Croatia, whose citizens still need an entry permit to travel to the country, writes EurActiv.

The citizens of most EU countries travel without visas to a list of foreign countries, but the nationals of some new EU member states still need a visa to travel to countries such as the United States, Canada or Australia.

A regulation which entered into force on 20 December requires EU countries to “react in common” on visa matters, especially in cases where foreign countries “subjects [EU] citizens to differing treatment”.

If within six months the problem is not solved, the EU could introduce visas for US diplomats, the Commission warned.

But diplomats of the countries concerned told EurActiv they would continue to negotiate bilaterally to solve the problem
