E.U.-U.S. Travel Tariffs

“European Union officials are furious with a new US fee mandatory for most travelers from Europe. The EU is now considering introducing a similar fee for American travelers.”

“Fourteen dollars may not sound like a lot. But this autumn, the sum—in the shape of the new fee being charged by the United States to some overseas visitors coming into the country—is proving enough to inflame tempers in the European Union. … ‘I think it is a bit bizarre to introduce a tax to promote tourism,’ intoned Alexander Graf Lambsdorff, a member of European Parliament. … ‘it seems a bit absurd that the US of all countries would tax people who are not represented in this debate. Taxation without representation, I believe, has played a certain role in American history.'”
