Info for Schiphol visitors

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Book your own timeslot

    From now on, you can go through security at a time of your choice, as long as you reserve a time slot.
