I am expected to arrive at AMS (Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, Netherlands) from a non-Schengen country, Singapore, with Singapore airlines. That is on one ticket. I am now planning to buy an additional separate ticket from AMS to TLV (Tel Aviv, Israel), so another non-Schengen country. The AMS -> TLV ticket will likely be with the airline KLM.
My question is whether I would be able to stay airside in AMS, in the international transit area, and not clear immigration, between arriving from SIN and departing to TLV. Note that I will travel with carry-on baggage only.
Some potential issues I thought of that I might have if I want to stay airside:
- Once I land, I would not be let into the transit area without clearing immigration because I am not in transit on a single ticket. Is there some kind of check upon entering the transit area that may exclude me?
- I would not be allowed to board because I haven't gone through landside check-in (maybe they need to do some document check there, which wouldn't be done for me if I have an online/mobile check-in boarding pass?).
- Any other possible issues?
Note that I am technically allowed to visit the Netherlands with my passport, but would just prefer to go directly to the airside transit area without needing to clear immigration and customs and all that.
