    Hi, I am American traveling from Dublin to San Francisco, with an 8hour layover in Frankfurt. my question is do I have to go through customs if I want to explore Frankfurt for a few hours? thanks!


    Yes, you will have to go through Schengen Passport control to leave the airport and then Schengen Exit passport control when you return to the airport. There's not much to see in Frankfurt - just hang out at the airport.

    Canadian Citizen flying from Toronto-Frankfurt-Budapest. Do I clear customs in Frankfurt or Budapest? or both?


    As Hungary is currently outside the Schengen area you will only go through Immigration and Customs in Budapest.
