  • do i need airport transit visa
    Oct 27, 2015
    i'll be flying from new delhi(del) to prague(prg) .my flight is a connecting one and it has a layover in amsterdam for 12 hours. will i need airport transit visa and can i leave airport premises of amsterdam?


    You will need a Schengen tourist visa (or whatever appropriate visa you need for your visit to Prague), since Prague and Amsterdam are both in the Schengen area, you will go through Schengen passport control in Amsterdam.


  • Reykjavik Airport - Transit Visa?
    Jan 4, 2015
    I want to board a flight via Icelandair through Reykjavik to Canada as a new immigrant. I have the immigrant visa but not yet the permanent resident card, only the COPR (Confirmation of Permanent Residence). Can I transit in Iceland without a Schengen transit visa?

    Flying delta from Atlanta to AMS, connecting flight on KLM to BUD do I have to claim bags and re-check? Do I have to go through customs?


    On arrival at AMS after passport control, follow signs to 'Baggage Hall' located on the ground level, retrieve your bags, & go through customs for security check. If connecting to a Schengen country, go through ticket control & security check.


    Ignore saapr - his directions are completely wrong. Since Budapest is outside the Schengen Area, you can make a completely sterile connection at AMS, just follow the signs from your arrival gate to your departure gate, where you will go through security. You don't have to do anything with your bags.
