Hi, Im traveling from Boston to Budapest later this month and both my arriving and returning flights connect through Frankfurt with just over an hour layover.
On my arriving flight do i need to pass through customs or switch terminals? is an hour enough time?
Same on the departing flight? do i pass through any customs or switch terminals?
whoops, also forgot to ask about having to pick up any of my luggage. I will have a checked bag.
I am flying from Birmingham UK to FRA (Lufthansa), then from FRA to Toronto (Air Canada). My flights are both in/out of terminal 1. I have 1 hour 20 mins for connection. Will I have to go through security and any kind of other checks? Will 1 hour 20 mins be enough time? I have a UK passport.
All you have to do is walk from your arrival gate to your departure gate. You have enough time.
We will be arriving in Frankfurt on a United flight and plan on carrying our luggage on. If it is larger than Lufthansa allows will we be able to gate check it or will we have to go through a check in counter?
You will either be allowed to carry it on or will be able to gate check it.

No, you do not have to go through passport control or do anything with your luggage if both flights are on the same reservation. You have enough time.

I'm from Brazil, and I'm going to Italy with stop in Frankfurt and my flight-back are 7 months after, only in December. But, I will stay in Italy only 25 days, after I going to London and stay there during 5 months, than I will back to Italy. I need a special visa for it? Could you help me?
You can normally visit Italy or transit Germany without a Visa, but since you are staying so long, you will need a longer, multiple entry visa issued by an Italian consulate or embassy.
Is enought time 1.5 hrs to connect from a flight coming from Minsk, Belarus to Frankfurt. I have to take the plane coming to Toronto, Canada. ALso, I have to check my luggages again?
If both tickets are on the same reservation all you have to do is go through security and to your departure gate. You don't have to do anything with your baggage.
