  • Can transit passengers go to the Arrivals area, to meet some friends?
    Jul 22, 2016
    Good afternoon, I have friends coming from Italy, that will transit in Amsterdam. As they have 5 hours before taking the other airplane, I want to meet them for 2 hours in the "Arrivals" area. Is this possible? Are they allowed to exit the transit area? Thank you very much for a quick answer (they are coming monday).


    It depends on their citizenship. If they are EU nationals then yes they can do this. for other nationalities it may be more of an issue.

    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?
