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?

  • The website for it has been taken down. It looks like it's not happening. – jdouglas Jan 6 at 1:04

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.

    As another update, Schiphol Airport changed the RTP-NL launch date on its website from "Q1 2018" to "2018". – Nick Lee Apr 12 '18 at 12:49
