    Flying on Delta JFK/AMS /PRG. From the posts, I am unclear if I need to go through customs with my bags at AMS OR if the bags will be transferred automatically and I will just go through passport/security control twice without my bags. If I need to go through with my bags, there has been reference to using the green hall if I have nothing to declare. What are things that need to be declared? Thanks.

     

    You will go through Schengen Passport Control when you enter the Schengen Pier of the terminal. You do not have to do anything with your baggage in Amsterdam.

    I will by flying from Agadir to AMS by Transavia and connect next day to Houston USA. Do I need to pick up my luggage and go through Schengen Passport control and security ?

     

    Yes, you do. Transavia will not transfer your bags to another airline unless you purchased the tickets together.

    We would be flying in on Delta from Detroit to AMS. On seperate ticket will be flying to Berlin on Easy Jet. Will we have to get our luggage then recheck it? Is it in the same terminal?

     

    Sorry, in my earlier post I assumed you were flying Delta/KLM on both segments. Since you purchased separate tickets, you will have to claim your baggage from Delta and re-check at EasyJet. 1 hr 10 minutes isn't enough time to do that. You need to find another way to Berlin.

     

    Thank you! We were looking at two options. I think that we will stay on the same airlines. Don't want to have to pick up luggage then recheck. That flight did have 3 hours between flights. Wanted to make sure that KLM and Easy jet were in the same terminal.

     

    Yes, Amsterdam only has one terminal.

    Will 1 hour and 10 mins be enough time. I will be flying in on delta to AMS and connecting to Berlin. Do we have to get our luggage?

     

    Yes, you have plenty of time. You will go through Schengen Passport control and security when you enter the Schengen pier of the terminal. You do not have to do anything with your baggage.

     

    Thank you!

    Hi, I'll be flying from US to Amsterdam on the last leg of an itinerary that was bought in Amsterdam. Two hours later I'll be flying back to US on a separate itinerary which is the return leg of the itinerary bought in US. Is two hours enough time between arrival from an international flight to departure on another international flight? Will I have to go through Passport control to exit Arrivals area of Schiphol and then go through Passport control again to enter the Departures lounge or both the Arrivals & Departures (downstairs and upstairs) interconnected? I will have no checked baggage and reason for such a nested itinerary is because I want to use my upgrades before they expire soon and collect miles. Thank you very much for the help!

     

    If you are able to check in online for your AMS-US flight you can go directly from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Otherwise you will have to exit to check in. However, since you have no checked baggage I'm pretty sure you will have enough time to do so.

    I will be flying Rio de Janeiro to AMS, stay at AMS for 5 hours until I get the flight to Manchester, UK. I've heard that there is the "Iamsterdam" letters outside the airport, right in front its entrance, so I would like to take some photos, but I don't know if it is possible to get out for a minute from the airport as I'm traveling to a non-schengen country. It is possible? Thank you.

     

    If you have a Schengen Visa, you could exit there. However, if you do not have a Schengen Visa then you cannot.

     

    Yes, as a Brazilian I don't need Visa to any european country. Anyway I have double citizenship, so I have the italian passaport.

    I am flying from DTW through AMS with the final destination OTP a. Will I have to go through customs in AMS a or OTP? And do I have to collect my bagged and recheck it in AMS? Thank You! :)

     

    Since you will not be entering the Schengen zone you will not go through customs or do anything with your baggage in Amsterdam. You will just go through security at your departure gate to Bucharest.

    I will fly with Garuda Indonesia then connect to KLM with 2 hours stopover (not a direct connection booking). Do you think it's enough for immigration and re-checking baggage? How long would be from the arrival to the departure hall?

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. Where you will exit customs and the departure hall are pretty close together.

     

    Thanks a lot!

    I will be flying from DTW to CPH, connecting at AMS. Delta flight from DTW to AMS. Delta/KLM flight from AMS to CPH. Do I need to retrieve/recheck luggage? Passport check? Is 2hr connection time enough? Thanks so much.

     

    You do not have to do anything with your luggage, you will go through passport control when you enter the Schengen Pier of the terminal. You have plenty of time.

     

    Many thanks for your help!

    I have a flight from DTW that arrives in AMS before continuing on to Manchester. I have 1 hour and 10 minutes between connections? Will that allow time to get through whatever checkpoints i may need to? Thank you. (flying delta/KML)

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security as you will not be entering the Schengen Area.

    I have a transfer to catch but can't print off the boarding pass for this flight, where do I do this and will the transfer from KLM to Estonian flight be in the same terminal. I have an hour before the transfer flight

     

    The transfer desk for the estonian flight should be able to help you.

    I'm flying from Glasgow to Amsterdam then on to Hamburg, however is 40 minutes enough time to get through any checks then to my next flight? I'll be taking a carry on bag only and any info about the checks you go through between connecting flights would be great. Thanks

     

    Just to add, both flights will be with klm and I wanted to check if this was long enough before booking

     

    That should be enough time. You will go through schengen passport control when you enter the schengen pier of the terminal.

     

    Thank you for that!

    1 1/2 hour layover in Amsterdam. Flying Delta Portland, OR to Edinburgh. Will I need to go through customs? Do I have enough time?

     

    You will not go through Immigration or Customs in Amsterdam as you will not be entering the Schengen area. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security.

    I am getting the 18:05 flight from Washington IAD to Amsterdam AMS, due to arrive at 7:20. My flight from AMS to NCL starts boarding at 7:30 but does not depart until 8:20, is this enough time? Will I have to go through security and customs?

     

    I should note - both flights are on KLM, departing flight to Newcastle is from gate D05, but I do not know what my arrival terminal in Amsterdam is...

     

    All KLM flights in Amsterdam are in the same terminal. You will have to go through security at your departure gate but will not have to go through passport control or customs since you will not be entering the Schengen area. You will go through UK Immigration and Customs when you get to Newcastle.

     

    Also, you should have enough time.

    Yes, they will be in the same terminal. Just follow signs to your departure gate. You will go through schengen passport control when you enter your departure pier.

     

    Thanks That was very helpful
