NOTICE: Construction of a new website is underway to address the difficulties of the past 17 months. We project a lengthy testing period because we are committed to it working right the first time. As a result, you may see the leaner TRC website for a while.

Many of you have contacted us regarding the recent news reports that U.S. citizens may soon be required to obtain a visa to visit the countries of the European Union. The situation is very complicated, and in fact, has been brewing for several years. While it is a fluid situation and tempers may be running high, changing a policy such as this will also need some time to implement if it moves forward.

We have included a link below to a summary which offers insight as to how we got here and what may happen. I would call your attention to the end of the article, which offers a hopeful note – the next meeting between EU and US officials is scheduled for June 2017. Let’s hope for all our fellow travelers that a reasonable compromise can be reached.

Be assured that we are monitoring the situation and will advise everyone accordingly when the time comes.
