There are many places that people wish they could travel to, but what about traveling to Europe? The European Union is one of the most important international political forums in the world today. And one of the things that are done there are politics. Many people would like to break free from political control and travel to other countries to political demonstrations. But the truth is, breaking free of political control is very difficult and very dangerous. The European Union is a politically stable and thriving super power.
The question, though, is what can we do as US visitors or travelers to Europe to actually help in these times of turmoil? The answer, really, comes with more good news than you probably think! For starters, you can use our good old freedom of speech laws to your advantage! Many EU countries require that all citizens have the right to freely express themselves, and that includes traveling within their borders. You can use this right to your advantage and let others know about your travels to European countries.
Some countries, like Italy, want to crack down on this kind of non-political speech. So, stay tuned for any US travelers’ attempts to visit Italy or other European countries that might make your trip safer and more enjoyable. On the other hand, if you happen to be an american who wants to visit some European countries, you should not worry too much about the political situation. All kinds of citizens, including US citizens, are still free to travel around Europe.
Still, even if you are traveling within the EU, you should consider social distancing. Let’s take a look at how this applies to traveling to EU countries. When you are travelling from one country to another within the European Union, you should consider the country where you are headed. If you are heading towards Sweden for your vacation, for instance, you should not have to worry about getting vaccinated against the swine flu when you go to Germany or another EU country. However, what if you are headed towards France, from where you will be heading towards the UK?
There are many cases where people are banned from travelling to EU member states because they have an expired visa. Or, there are restrictions based on nationality. For example, those who are HIV infected cannot travel to some EU countries. And, citizens of certain states are prohibited from traveling to other states that do not belong to their national group or category.
Another reason why travel restrictions are implemented is because of human security. If there is another terrorist attack in european countries, the fear is going to be felt in all countries. And most likely, all traveling americans are going to suffer from this kind of ban. It is also why there are different visa requirements between various european countries.
There is one common thing between all these visa requirements: they all require tourists to have a EUR 10, visa free for at least one month in a row. The requirement for US citizens is slightly different but still, a visit to european country is usually not possible without one. One can use an EUR 3, right before departure, to buy any necessary over there. This way, tourists can be able to take everything with them including their currency.
With all the possible reasons for these new restrictions concerning travel to Europe, how could european tourists and US citizens find a way to travel to Europe? The answer is simple: use the internet. Use one of the many companies offering online travel services. Usually, these companies are able to offer you the possibility to plan your trip in advance. And most of all, you will be able to save time, money and energy, among others.
