comment New device checking rules for flights to/from USA
The TSA has no control over flights to/from the UK (except those also to/from the US), so this is in effect a separate policy - even if it does mirror the US'es policy...

comment Documents necessary (and recommended) for first time travel to EU for US Citizen
@Tor-EinarJarnbjo Please re-read my answer. I explicitly stated that is was NOT a requirement, but that it is recommended - especially when the purpose of the visit is to meet a fiancee (where overstay would be a real concern). The quote I included states that they could refuse entry, which is also correct.

comment Documents necessary (and recommended) for first time travel to EU for US Citizen
@Relaxed The policy is that you must show that "you do intend to leave the Schengen Area when the visa expires". This is explicitly called out in the Visa application process, and implicitly one of the criteria for travel without a visa. The easiest way to do this is to show a ticket outside of the US, but as my answer states it's not technically a requirement.

The provisions you are referring to apply only to US permanent residents, not all "US residents".

comment do i have to retrieve my luggage and re check in upon arrival at usa?
@LorenPechtel No, I'm not. For example, read the section entitled "Outbound: Air, Land and Sea" at dhs.gov/news/2012/09/11/… The fact that you don't see any such checks (other than occasional "random" checks, which normally aren't random!) doesn't mean that they don't exist.

The US absolutely DOES have outbound border controls. Whilst it's true they do not have specific outbound physical immigration checks, all passengers and all baggage is security screened, and all passenger are electronically checked using information provided by the airlines using APIS.

The page you have linked to is incorrect. Visa-on-Arrival costs US$30, whilst the recommend e-visa costs only US$20.
