European Union Up in Arms over U.S. Travel Tax

Photo Courtesy -- Getty Images(BERLIN) -- Spiegel Online reports the United States is charging a new fee to overseas visitors entering the country.  Accordingly, members of the European Parliament and other officials of the European Union have grown angry, saying the charge does not coincide with U.S.-EU agreements.  One official even commented that it is "bizarre to introduce a tax to promote tourism."  The actual fee is being introduced under the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).  Also according to Spiegel Online, the $14 fee is broken down as follows: $4 for ESTA administrative costs and $10 for U.S. efforts to promote the U.S. as a tourism destination.  Essentially, foreign travelers to the U.S. would be forced to pay for the advertising meant to encourage them to travel to the U.S.  The U.S. officially announced the addition of the travel tax in early August, and plan for the fee to take effect in September.
