  • GUIDANCE ABOUT CONNECTING FLIGHT

    HI. I AM ARRIVING FRA FROM WASHINGTON DULLES BY UA 932 T1. CONNECTING FLIGHT IS LA756 WITH LAYOVER OF 1'25 SAME TERMINAL. CAN ANYONE GUIDE WHEATHER TIME IS OK ? ALSO PL GUIDE FOR TRANSFER HOW TO CHANGE WITHIN T1 FOR DIFFERENT GATES..

     

    second flight is for going to Mumbai (india). I am indian citizen on US visa student visa.

     

    thanks a lot in advance.

     

    LAN 756 is a Lan Chile flight from Santiago to Sao Paulo. Where are you flying on your second flight and on what airline? IAD only has one terminal. When you arrive at IAD you will go through US Immigration, claim your bags, go through US Customs, re-check your bags at the re-check desk and go through security. 1 hr 25 minutes is below the recommended minimum, especially considering that you will be entering on a visa, which takes longer.

     

    I'm sorry, I thought you were connecting at IAD. LA756 you probably meant LH756 which is a Lufthansa flight to Mumbai. All you have to do in Frankfurt is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You will not have to go through passport control or security. You have enough time. Disregard my previous post.

     

    Thanks a lot. This is really useful information.. thanks with regards.

    We will arrive from Palma de Mallorca by Lufthansa and transfer to Air Canada Gate to Toronto. Arrive 1530 departure 1715. Do we have enough time?

     

    Yes, that should be plenty of time. you will just go through Schengen Exit Passport control and to your departure gate.

    We are flying from LAX to FRA, arriving at Terminal 1 (Z gate) with flight LH457 at 11.20 am. Our connecting flight (LH234) depart from terminal 1, gate A at 12.20pm. Is there enough time for the connection? Do we have to go through passport control and a new security check from the Z gate to the A gate? Thank you

     

    The second flight is to Rome.

     

    You will go through passport control but not security. You should have enough time.

    We are flying YYZ-FRA-MUC-Seville (Air Canada-Lufthansa). We have 60 minutes to change planes in FRA and are wondering if we have enough time. Will we go through Passport Control? Will we need to go through security?

     

    Yes, you will go through passport control, not security. You should have just enough time.

     

    Thanks!! Passage went well.

    Hi, I fly from Munich (MUC) to FRA (arriving at Gate A) and have a 45 minutes connection for my flight to Miami (MIA) at Gate Z, all flights with LH. Do I have to pass passport control and security check? Thanks!

     

    Gate A: Bus arrival

     

    You will have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control but not security. Apparently the lines at Schengen Exit Passport Control for the bus gates are really bad. This will be a difficult connection.

     

    Thanks for quick reply!

    I will be taking UA944 from Chicago to Menchester (UA9458/ LH940). The connecting time is only 1 hour 20 minutes. Do I need to pass the passport control and do I have enough time? Thank you.

     

    Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you will not go through passport control in Frankfurt. You have enough time.

     

    Thank you

    Travelling from Toronto to Geneva via Frankfurt.. Toronto to Frankfurt with Condor and Frankfurt to Geneva with Lufthansa.. Will I have to collect my checked baggage at Frankfurt? Also, is a layover of 1 hour and 40 minutes enough to go through passport/security? Thanks in advance!

     

    If all tickets are on the same reservation then you will not have to claim your bags in Frankfurt. You will just go through Schengen passport control and to your departure gate. You should have enough time.

     

  • TRANSITING THROUGH FRANKFURT

    i am a citizen of Nigeria flying through FRANKFURT from Barbados to Nigeria.. I would be staying 5 hours in the international transit area.. Do i require a transit visa for this route?? because it was stated online that transiting through frankfurt and not leaving the international area doesn`t require a transit visa..

     

    Unless you hold a valid US Visa, Nigerian citizens are required to hold a Schengen Airport Transit Visa to transit the Schengen Area, even if they are staying wtihin the transit area. - http://www.schengenvisainfo.com/transit-schengen-visa/

     

    But i got this online, what doesnthis mean precisely In these five airports in Germany you can stay at the International Transit Area without a visa: Cologne/Bonn Düsseldorf Frankfurt/Main Hamburg Munich

     

  • changing terminal, two separate tickets,do I need visa

    If instead I have to change terminals from 1 to 2 in Frankfurt but also am arriving in Frankfurt on condor but to Bombay on Emirates. I do not need a visa intransit but if changing terminals do I need a visa

     

    It depends on your Citizenship and if you hold a valid visa for the US. Where are you coming from? Are your tickets on one reservation or two separate reservations?

     

    The person has a Nepalese passport. He does not have any visa for the USA. This option would be on two separate tickets.
