Got a tip about Amsterdam Schiphol airport not covered in one of our AMS forum topics? Feel free to post a comment or question here for AMS airport. Share your experiences and get notified when there is a response.
what is the central security system i heard of of schiphol? does this take much more time? thank you!
In Amsterdam you used to go through security at your gate which was hugely inefficient. Now passengers entering the airport in Amsterdam or connecting passengers that have to go through security do so at large centralized checkpoints like a normal airport.
We are flying from Amsterdam to Philadelphia on Saturday Aug 6. Our flight is at 10:45a. We have not flown from AMS before. Please let us know how early to arrive at the aiport and if any tips we should know. Thanks!
I am an Indian national holding a business visit visa to the UK. I'm transiting through AMS and it's a 1hr 55min lay over. My initial carrier from India to AMS will be Jet Airways and from AMS to UK will be by KLM. And thus I may need to change from Terminal 3 to terminal 2 for the change of planes.
Do I need to get a transit visa for this, and will this 1hr 55min layover be sufficient for a transit ?
Amsterdam only has one Terminal. If you are holding a UK visa then you don't need a Schengen Transit Visa. You have enough time.
