Summary

You arrived on time at the airport, checked in for your flight, went through security and now it’s time to go through customs, right ? Not yet! You only go through customs at Schiphol when you return from your trip. Unless you are traveling to another Schengen country, you will go through passport control after the security check. And that is done by the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, not the customs. Do you find it a bit confusing? Do not worry! In this blog we explain the difference between passport control and customs in great detail.
