Arrive in AMS at 1:35pm from Budapest. Have flight to US leaving at 3:15pm. Is this enough time to make the connection? What will we have to go through as far as security and gates? Schengen exit also plus US security questions?
We have 90 minutes from when we arrive in AMS from Portugal to get to our connection back to the US (MSP). Should this be enough time?
Hello, I will travel with a US passport from TPE to DUB, vis AMS, and vice versa early August and early September. As for the itinerary, there is an option of a 50-minute or a 2hr 55 minute layover on my way in. Then on the way out it's either 55 minutes or 4 hr 55 minutes. I am concerned that 50 minutes on the way in and 55 minutes on the way out would be too tight. Yet 4 hr 55 minutes seems like a long time. Also, will I have to go through security check? I will try not to check any bags, though I may have to check 1. Please advice how I should arrange my itinerary, thank you very much.
We are flying Delta(KML) into Schiphol arriving at 6:00 am with our Air Lingus(KML) flight to Cork departing at 9:20 am. Upon arrival we will need to stop at the transfer desk for our onward boarding pass but after that I'm not sure and then were hoping to stop off at the Yotel for a quick nap and shower.

I am trying to understand exactly what immigration,security or passport requirements we will experience from the moment we arrive until depart again.

Thanks
I don't know if you'll really have time to stop at the Yotel. Do you have checked bags or not? If you have no checked bags you just have to go to the Aer Lingus transfer desk and to your departure gate.
No checked bags, just carry-ons. The real question is what immigration,security or passport requirements we will experience from the moment we arrive until depart again
Since you aren't entering the Schengen Area you do not go through passport control. You just go to the Aer Lingus transfer desk and your departure gate.
In September last week,I "ll be travelling from Mumbai,India to Seattle,USA and I have a transit at
Schiphol. Layover time is around 90 minutes .I would like to know how much time it 'll take to
transfer from T3 to Gate D3 in T2. Will there be any clearence by US immigration ?
Amsterdam only has one terminal. In Amsterdam you will go through Security and US Security questions, but you will go through US Immigration and Customs in Seattle.
We will be arriving from FCO at 09:00 with KLM and departing with KLM at 09:50 for SFO. Booked one ticket from FCO to SFO. We will have checked luggage. Sure hoping this is enough time for our connection.
That is barely enough time as you will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and US Security questions.
I arrive from –°anada via Iceland at 12 pm , my friend will be coming from Ukraine at 11:55 am. So, pretty much at the same, will I be able to meet her inside before we go thru customs/passportcontrol/ security checks and baggage collection? She does not speak any English, so I want to go thru all checks just in case she needs help with translation.

No you will not. Since Iceland is in the Schengen Area you will not go through Passport Control upon arrival in Amsterdam.
Trip is 1 booking: Traveling fr SFO to Paris via Air France. Paris to AMS via KLM royal Dutch airline
Arriving AMS 7:55 pm , departing AMS to NBO via Kenya airways at 8:45pm. Will 50 mins be enough to catch my NBO flight? Will I go through passport check? Do I need to get my checked in luggage?
Is it one reservation or two separate reservations?
It's one reservation thanks
Trying to find flights to Canada and the only decent priced ones force a connection via USA. Is this because tourism is down going to US and they want to help codeshare partners fill their flights before releasing seats? Can see the direct flight AMS to YYZ has plenty of capacity!
It's because of the exchange rate between the US Dollar and Canadian Dollar - US Airlines would rather sell tickets for their flights to Canada in other currencies because the Canadian Dollar is currently so weak.
