This is my first flight outside of the U.S , I'll be flying on Delta direct flight from U.S.A to Amsterdam but I'm not sure where to go once my plane lands. A friend is to meet at AMS but as of this moment my landing gate has not been given.So my question is once landing where do I go? I was told that I do not go to the passport desk but just baggage area. I'm now very confused...

You won't find out your arrival gate until the day of your flight. If you are ending your trip in Amsterdam you just follow signs to baggage claim/ ground transportation/exit. You will go through Schengen Entry Passport Control in order to access the baggage claim.

Thank you for the clarification. So I just get off the plane and head to the Delta arrival baggage area?
I will be arrivng from the US and my friend will be arriving from Croatia at the same time (10:30) . Will we both be going to the same baggage claim area, and can we meet there? Or will it be better to meet outside? My question is then, where would be the easiest place to meet?
It's probably best to meet outside. Meet in the rail station.
Thanks for your suggestion of the rail station as the best place to meet someone. Where in the rail station is the best location? Thanks!
Hello.. I have a quick Question... My Situation is: I am travelling to India from USA through Amsterdam in June (Indian National).. MY to be Fiancee is in Amsterdam (Indian National).... We are planning to meet at the AMS airport.. She has valid Netherlands work visa... Also has valid Europe and UK travel visa... I do not have a any other visa than USA nor wish to apply for Europe right now.. The question is: If she comes to airport with booking any local or UK flight, will she be able to meet me at the gate(considering US and other countries terminals may be different)?? If she doesn't board this flight and go back to Amsterdam will there be any issue with her immigration??
The only way she could see you is if she booked a UK flight or somewhere else directly outside the Schengen Area. Otherwise she will be restricted to the Schengen Pier in Amsterdam.
I am arriving on a Delta flight from US at 8:45 AM and need to catch an 11:20 Air Croatia flight. They are two seperate tickets. Is that enough time to make the connection? Can I check in for the Air croatia flight at the gate or do I need to go out to the ticketing desk?
That should be enough time. If you have no checked bags then yes, you can check in at the Croatia Airlines transfer desk or gate.
I would like to know if a 55 min connection will be sufficient to connect from a KLM flight which arrives at AMS to an Air Europe flight which goes to Madrid. Both were sold by klm on the same ticket. What happens with our luggage. I wonder if they will be able to send us to our destination properly.thanks for your help
Where are you flying into Amsterdam from?
Then that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. Your bags should go straight through to Madrid if both flights are on the same reservation.
We will be arriving from the US at 5:40 am and plan to spend some time at the Yodel Hotel at the airport. Our connecting flight to Rome leaves at 11:50 am. Will we need to go through passport control on our way to the Yodel? Also, what time should we leave the Yodel to make it to our flight that leaves at 11:50? thanks so much.
I am a US citizen with a 7:10 am flight from Schiphol to Edinburgh (will be checking bags). The earliest sprinter train from my hotel area arrives Schiphol at 5:32 am. Does this allow enough time to complete all steps to make flight?
