    I'm flying in from Boston in KLM and laying over in Amsterdam for an hour and 40 minutes in November. Is this sufficient time to go through security, etc. before I catch my flight to Cape Town?

    Hi! I'm flying into AMS with 1hr 20min layover. Do I have time to get my VAT from global refund? And shop a little at duty free?

     

    I'll be in terminal 2 for my layover and connection.

     

    Amsterdam only has one Terminal. I don't think you have enough time to do all that.

    Hi, my mom is flying from Salt Lake City to Moscow through Amsterdam. What Are her steps in AMS? Does she need to check in one more time? And what about baggage and passport control?thank you very much!

     

    If she's flying Delta/KLM then all she has to do in Amsterdam is walk from her arrival gate to her departure gate.

  • Airport transfer with re baggage control

    Hello, I am travelling from Kathmandu to toronto with two different airliness, Qatar and arkefly. According to Arkefly I need to recheck my luggage in AMS. I will have 5 hours time transit time. So is there any problem with self luggage transfer? Can i receive my initial flight luggage in transfer area? I dn't need visa for transfer but I cant leave airport. Please feel free to write. Can i recollect my luggage and recheck it again to another flight within transfer area ?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. You will have to exit the transfer area, so you will have to go through Schengen passport control.

     

    I dnt have schengen visa. Can I transfer my luggage myself then to another flight ( to Canada) ?

     

    You will have to get a full transfer visa from the Netherlands.

     

    Although I belong to non visa exempt country, I don't need transit visa according to embassay because my destination is Canada and I have temporarily resident permit to Canada . So what you say in this case ?

    That should be enough time. If both flights are on KLM they should be able to check your bags through to your final destination at your origin.

    I'm flying from Atlanta Ga to Hamburg Germany. Do I proceed on to my gate or do I have to collect my bags and do customs and passport in AMS or will I do all of that in HAM? I'm flying Delta and KLM to HAM?

     

    In Amsterdam you will go through Passport control and to your gate. You don't have to do anything with your bags.

    We are arriving via Delta from the US, on a 50 minute layover to Edinburgh, UK. IS that enough time, and do we need to go through Passport Control?

     

    You do not have to go through passport control since you are not entering the Schengen area. You have just enough time if everything goes smoothly.

    We will be arriving in Amsterdam from Atlanta early morning. Will we need to go through security or customs if we are transferring to a KLM flight to Rome? How much time would be required? Thanks

     

    You will go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate. About an hour is sufficient.
