    Default Transit Visa to Amsterdam

    Hi,

    We are travelling to India via Amsterdam. Question I have is will I need Transit VISA?
    We both have h1b valid approval notice but we have expired VISA on our passport.
    Appreciate quick response.
    What will I need to do in case I need Transit VISA. Can we take that at the airport?
    Thank You

    Recently I herad that even a valid Visa approval should work..however I would encourage you to speak to the airlines you are travelling by they can best assist you with this question.

    You would need a visa if you plan on visiting Amsterdam
    while you are there. If you are just changing planes in Amsterdam and not planning on leaving the terminal, you don't need a visa in Amsterdam

    I had a similar situation to yours. I needed a transit visa to go through London and came to know that 1 hr before traveling. I then canceled my BA ticket and bought tkt from NW to go through Amsterdam as they did not require a transit visa if you have valid indian passport. It was in late January this year. You should still check it with NW airlines and from the Netherland consulate web site.
