The Netherlands is implementing a Registered Traveller Programme to allow holders of certain passports to use the automatic gates at Schiphol (AMS) abbreviated RTP-NL. Announced last year, the implementation of that program has been delayed until Q1 2018, which is now. Does anyone know if that program is taking applications yet?
Schipol Airport tweeted about this earlier in the week. The linked tweet is in Dutch, but translates roughly as:
@ikorpershoek Hello Ies, thanks for your question. RTP-NL is currently still in development in cooperation with the Dutch Government and @Marechaussee. Unfortunately, We are unable to estimate the starting date of RTP-NL at this time. ^ Job
So it's not operational yet, unfortunately.
I went through passport control (near Pier H) this week, and while there's a sign up near the Privium lane for RTP-NL registration, it's blacked out with no indication of when it's opening.
