Millions of tourists and business people visiting Europe will have to complete a 5 euro ($5.35) online security check before arrival if an EU plan to tighten controls on foreigners who do not need visas wins approval.Similar to the U.S. ESTA system, it would affect citizens of around 60 countries who can visit Europe's Schengen area for short trips without first applying for a visa, including Americans, Japanese and -- depending on what arrangements London negotiates for leaving the EU -- potentially Britons too.EU officials hope it could be up and running after legislative approval by early next decade.
