  • 5 hours connection to non-schengen country

    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.

     

  • Washington (IAD) > AMS > Newcastle (NCL)

    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

    I will be flying from Delhi, India to Atlanta, US with KLM. What are the formalities that I will be subjected to? On an average how long will it take for me to go through those procedures and take my connecting flight given that I will be flying during the holiday period?

     

    You will just have to walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security. You should have enough time.

    I am flying from SFO to BUD with a 1 hr layover in AMS. Is this enough time to make it for the connection flight? Do I need to go through passport control? Also, would my baggages make it on time fro the connection flight?

     

    You will go through Schengen passport control when you enter the Schengen pier of the terminal. You and your baggage should have enough time if your first flight is on-time.

    Flying from Rome to US with 90 min layover at AMSTERDAM. What is the process for baggage, passport etc... Thanks!

     

    All you have to do in Amsterdam is go through schengen exit passport control and then go through security at your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your baggage.

    We fly Into AMS from MInneapolis, USA on Delta and connect to another Delta flight on to Rome. Will we need to collect baggage or will it be transferred to next flight for us? Will we go thru passport control or customs? Thanks!

     

    Your flight to Rome will be operated by Alitalia or KLM, not Delta. You will not have to do anything with your baggage. You will go through passport control when you enter the Schengen Pier of the terminal.

    Arriving from Tel Aviv on KLM, departing for Atlanta on Delta. Layover is 55 min. Will I make it on time for Atlanta flight? Flights purchased on one ticket. Thank you!

     

    Yes, that should be enough time. As you won't be entering the Schengen Area you won't have to go through Passport Control in AMS, just security at your departure gate.
