Transit thru AMS from UK to BCN

Hi

My daughter has flights NCL - AMS - BCN, just wondering in this post-brexit world, what the process is going through AMS when coming from the UK? Will she need to go through security again, what is the transit process through Amsterdam? And - also, how about when she comes back - anything she needs to know about getting through the airport?

Arrival from NCL will be at the D pier Non Schengen gates or (if KL Cityhopper operates the flight) by bus, at the D pier. She needs to go through passport control airside, Non Schengen to Schengen. Flight to BCN leaves either from the D pier Schengen gates or the C pier. On the return, it is the other way around: arrival from BCN at C pier or D pier Schengen, go through passport control to Non Schengen area and the flight to NCL leaves from the D pier. If the flight to NCL is operated by KL Cityhopper, departure is still from the D pier busgate (D6). No long distances, no security. It all depends on the lines at the passport control, but there is a short-connection lane if needed.

Note that when your daughter goes from Non Schengen to Schengen passport control she will have to go to a kiosk and she cannot use the automatic passport scanner machines.

When she does the return journey coming from BCN to back home (Schengen to Non Schengen) she will be able to use the passport scanners (if they are working) instead of queuing for a manned kiosk.
