Info for Schiphol visitors

  • What's allowed in my hand baggage?

    Pack smart. Check what you're allowed to bring onto the plane and what the rules are regarding liquids and electronics.

  • Wear fitted clothing and low shoes

    For a smoother security check, wear fitted clothing and low shoes. That way, you won't have to take anything off.

  • Put everything in your bag

    While in the security queue, empty your pockets and put everything in your bag, including your water bottle and laptop or tablet.
