  • Transit Visa
    Nov 21, 2015
    I am travelling from New Delhi to Amsterdam to Boston. I have a valid US Study Visa. Do I need transit visa?


    No, Indian travelers with a valid visa to visit the US do not need a Schengen Transit visa for a sterile airport transfer (which is what is available in Amsterdam).


  • Do i need Valid Visa
    Nov 17, 2015
    I ma traveling to DEL from PDX via AMS. My US visa is expired. Can i travel without valid US visa ? or should i take transit visa


    If you are an Indian citizen you will be denied boarding in Delhi unless you have a valid visa to enter the United States.


    Sorry, I misread, so you are exiting the US after overstaying your Visa? You will need a schengen airport transit visa if you have Indian citizenship, since you no longer have a valid US visa.

    It's a scam.


  • TransAvia check in within security?
    Oct 25, 2015
    Is there a Transavia checkin within security at Schiphol? I am coming from the US on a stand-by pass, and I have paid for checked bags on my confirmed Transavia flight to Seville.


    You will be outside security when you claim your bags.


  • 50 min layover
    Nov 19, 2014
    I will be traveling from ATL to PRG with a connection in AMS. My layover is 50 minutes. Is this enough time? What are the procedures I should expect?


  • Going to Aruba
    Oct 8, 2014
    My friend from Russia has Cariibean Netherlands visa, but unexperienced in foregn travel. I am a US citizen. Can I meet my friend in AMS at the gate from Moscow, so we together can board flight to Aruba? Can my friend stop in AMS in a hotel with Caribbean visa? If there is no answers - please advise where I can find them.


    Since your friend is not entering the Schengen Area he will not be allowed to exit the non-schengen wing of the terminal. You MAY be able to get to his arrival gate, but there's no guarantee of that. It should not be hard for him to get from his arrival gate to his departure gate.


  • Connecting AMS to KRS - baggage?
    Aug 29, 2014
    My wife is flying MSP-AMS-KRS; MSP-AMS on Delta, AMS-KRS on KLM City. After arriving in AMS, will she only go through passport control? Will she have to collect baggage, customs, and re-check, or is baggage sent straight through to Kristiansand and only passport control and customs in Norway? She is traveling on a Brazilian passport.


    No, she won't have to claim her baggage in AMS. She will go through Schengen passport control and security when she enters the departure pier for her KRS flight.


  • ATL to AMS to RAK with Delta
    Aug 13, 2014
    Hi, I am a US Citizen and I will be traveling from Atlanta to AMS to RAK in Marrakesh. Is 1 hour and 45 minutes enough time to connect in AMS? Thanks!


    Sorry, it is through KLM.


    Yes, that should be enough time. As both flights are outside schengen all you have to do in AMS is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and go through security.


  • Non checked thro' flight, non-Schengen to non-Schengen
    Mar 31, 2014
    Upon arriving at Schipol, I will need to collect my baggage as it cannot be 'checked through' to my destination. After doing so, will I be required to pass thro' Immigration/Customs and then repeat to re-enter OR It is possible to collect my baggage and proceed directly to my next departure area?


    Non-Schengen to non-Schengen flights don't require immigration proceedings. Pick up your bag on arrival, check it in with connecting airline, go through security check and on to your connecting gate.


    Many thanks 'sumar14'! Your answer is exactly what I wanted and has prevented any problems upon arriving at Schipol. Now if only Schipol etc could be so efficient and as responsive?


  • Traveling with all carry on from Seattle to AMS to Rome via easy jet.
    Dec 27, 2013
    We are flying in on delta from Seattle then taking easy jet to Rome. We we'll have no checked bags. Do we have to go through customs and security to get on easy jet flight? Thanks!!!


    You will go through EU immigration and customs, then have to check in for your EasyJet flight, then go through security. There will be no immigration when you arrive in Rome since both the Netherlands and Italy are in the Schengen area.
