Will ending visa-free travel for Americans in the EU change anything for you?
I will not be affected, however I have asked for dozens of visas. I will give my opinion. If you want to travel, a Visa should not be an issue. If a person will not travel to a determined country because it requests you a visa (that should not be an issue to obtain), then it’s an excuse.
As an example. The United States is among the most visited countries in the world despite having among the most restrictive visa policies there are in the world.
