>> The EU could be about to deny US citizens visa-free access. The European Parliament voting on Thursday to enforce a new visa regime. But it's the EU's executive body that will have the final say in a tit for tat move. The border bite back comes in response to Washington's denial of visa-free travel for citizens from some EU members.
People from Poland, Croatia, Cyprus, Romania and Bulgaria falling foul of US policy. And it's a storm that's been brewing across the pond for some time. The travel discrepancy was first raised in 2014 with the EU lawmakers saying the bloc had a legal obligation to respond within two years.
They're now pushing for a one year suspension of US visa free travel. But the states isn't alone in its approach. Canada also imposes visa requirements on some EU citizens, restrictions they say will be now be lifted by December. US EU relations have already suffered a setback around a flailing free trade deal.
Visa changes could see ties traveling further in the wrong direction.
