Do Americans require a visa?

​The IND is often asked if Americans require a visa.

​The answer is no. Americans do not require a visa.

The European Parliament has asked the European Commission to propose a temporary introduction of the visa requirement for American citizens. The reason for this is that the United States still imposes a visa requirement on some EU citizens. The European Commission must reply to the call of the European Parliament. As soon as more clarity has been provided, this will also be communicated to the US and its citizens.

For the time being, there is no reason to expect an introduction of the visa requirement for American citizens.
