When do I go through customs at Schiphol?
You arrived at the airport on time, checked in for your flight, went through the security check and now it’s time to go through customs, right? Not yet! You won’t be going through customs at Schiphol until you return from your trip. Unless you’re travelling to another Schengen country, you’ll be going through passport control after the security check. And that process is handled by the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, not Dutch Customs. Feeling like a confused customer? Not to worry! We explain the difference between passport control and customs in this blog.
