The reason was the news that the European Parliament may vote for the introduction of visas for citizens of the USA.
American tourists have canceled their trips to Europe — after reports of the European Parliament on the possible introduction of visas for citizens of the United States.
For the introduction of visas for US citizens last week voted by the European Parliament. Under the existing rules, the Commission must obey him and to cancel visa requirements for Americans for two months, and a year later the changes can take effect. The reason for the visa conflict between Europe and America was discrimination against citizens of several countries of the European Union, which the States refused to let in without a visa.
According to American travel agents, the news has caused enormous damage to the industry: American tourists EN masse cancel their trip to Europe.
So, co-owner CruisingStore.com and Galaxy Travel & Cruises Dwayne wall said that a few hours after publishing the news about the possible cancellation of a visa-free regime, a group of American tourists cancelled cruise Regent Seven Seas across the Mediterranean sea. Participants were afraid of having to obtain a visa. Due to the cancellation Dwayne wall lost about 40 thousand dollars. “The decision of the European Parliament can greatly affect the tourist flow from Europe to the United States,” added the travel agent.
However, experts believe that the decision of the European Parliament are unlikely to come into force. “The introduction of visas will cause huge economic damage to the countries of Europe, and the United States. A huge challenge will be finding staff for processing millions of visas,” — said the Executive Director of the European tour operators Association Tom Jenkins.
