The President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli, has signed a decision of the Legal Affairs Committee, which brings before the Court of Justice of the European Union the European Commission for not acting against the United States for not respecting visa reciprocity. This was announced for BNR Horizon from the office of the MEP Sophie in’t Veld.
US visas still apply to citizens of Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia and Cyprus.
MEP Sofia in’t Veld described the Commission’s actions as “absolutely unacceptable“. These four countries must be treated like everyone else. The Americans do not follow the rules and this means that visa reciprocity must be abolished, the MEP from Renew Europe group stressed, BNR’s correspondent in Brussels Angelina Piskova reported.
