The New York Times has reported that the U., a European Union country, is set to sign an agreement with Italy to provide a “Visa free” service to travelers to and from the United States and Europe.
The news comes as a wave of new cruise lines have announced plans to offer the same service.
The U.K.-based company Carnival is planning to offer a trip to the United Kingdom with a two-night stay in the U, a three-night in the United states and a three day trip to Italy.
The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says the new agreement will “support humanitarian assistance and development in the Mediterranean region.”
Carnival said the service will be available to U.s. citizens who qualify for a Visa free visa and to European Union citizens who are traveling to the U and to the EU who are eligible for a U.B.I. and EUB visa.
The new agreement is set for completion by July 2019.
