Instructions for Dusseldorf Airport

Traveling Between Schengen Countries

The establishment of the EU and the Schengen Agreement has simplified entry and departure procedures within Europe. Once a Japanese national has arrived at one of the Schengen countries, travel within that country is treated as “internal domestic” travel. The following entry and departure procedures apply to passengers traveling from one Schengen country to another Schengen country.

  • Entry:
    • Taken only in the first country of arrival.
    • Customs inspection for carry-on baggage is made at the first country of arrival and at the final destination for checked-in baggage.
  • Departure:
    • Taken only in the last Schengen country to be departed from.
    • The Customs inspection is made at the destination country.

Note: Entry/departure procedures may take an extended amount of time if the passenger does not possess a letter of consent. This letter does not guarantee permission to enter and/or depart from the country, since this is at the discretion of Immigration officer.


Passengers who plan to obtain their visa after their arrival in a Schengen country other than Germany will need a Schengen visa when going through Immigration in Germany. Passengers to whom this condition applies should inquire with their nearest German embassy or consulate.
