European parliamentarians have issued a deadline for Brussels to impose visas for American citizens. Lawmakers have criticized mandatory US visa applications for citizens of Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Cyprus and Poland.

The European Parliament on Thursday called on the EU's executive body to reintroduce visas for US citizens "within two months," citing Washington's failure to provide full visa reciprocity.
By a show of hands, parliamentarians passed a resolution demanding that the European Commission impose visas by May, ahead of the traditionally-busy tourist season.

"The lack of visa reciprocity affects at least 14 percent of EU citizens, namely the citizens of Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Cyprus and Poland as well as some EU citizens with dual nationality," said ALDE group Vice President Filiz Hyusmenova in a statement following the vote.

"It is high time for the commission to show administrative will and political strength, not only for defending those citizens' rights, but also for reinforcing the strength and unity of the European Union on the international scene," she added.
